Matt started his journalistic career working for Tabloid.Net, writing alongside Tim Blair and Ken Layne. He then founded the Prague-based newspaper “Prognosis” in the 1990s. In 2006, he worked as a page editor for the “Los Angeles Times” for a year, but he started earning popularity in 2007, when he wrote about John McCain from a libertarian perspective. The work was entitled “McCain: The Myth of a Maverick” which discussed how the McCain presidency would have advanced a statist agenda, in which the state would control social and economic policy; during this time John McCain was the Republican presidential nominee, and according to reports, Matt had to make an FOIA request to get a copy of McCain’s college thesis. In 2008, he was then hired by the libertarian journal “Reason” as editor-in-chief, which he would serve for the next eight years. His net worth increased significantly thanks to this effort, as “Reason” is a monthly magazine published by the Reason Foundation and has a circulation of around 50,000, and was named one of the 50 best magazines twice times by the Chicago Tribune.

In 2011, he wrote “The Declaration of Independents: How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What’s Wrong with America” which he published alongside Nick Gillespie – the title is a pun on the US Declaration of Independence, and is a non-fiction book which discusses the nature and influence of libertarianism. It was published by PublicAffairs which is a part of the Perseus Book Group.
He’s also been invited regularly onto television shows, and served as a co-host of the political discussion show “The Independents” which aired on Fox Business Network, a libertarian- focused talk show which was also hosted by Kmele Foster and Lisa Kennedy Montgomery. All of these opportunities continued to build his net worth.
