About Jason



Mattera-publicity-photoJason Mattera is a two-time New York Times bestselling author, served as the youngest editor of a national periodical, Human Events, and hosts “The Jason Mattera Show” on the legendary News Talk Radio 77 WABC in New York City. He is also the founder of Daily Surge.

Mattera’s latest book Hollywood Hypocrites: The Devastating Truth About Obama’s Biggest Backers (Simon & Schuster) landed on the New York Times bestseller list, creating widespread buzz. Mark Levin hailed Hollywood Hypocrites as “eye-popping, exhaustively, researched, and absolutely hilarious” and the late Andrew Breitbart called it a “barrage of body blows to Hollywood’s holier-than-thou limousine liberals.”

In 2010, Mattera’s debut book, Obama Zombies: How the Liberal Machine Brainwashed My Generation (Simon & Schuster) landed at #14 on the New York Times bestseller list. Rush Limbaugh, who endorsed the book twice on air, dubbed Mattera an official “Rush baby.”

Ann Coulter has crowned Mattera a “national treasure,” Michelle Malkin says his work is a “heat-seeking missile aimed at the Cult of Obama,” and POLITICO named him Washington D.C.’s “bad boy reporter.”

Mattera has appeared on virtually every major talk radio and television program since 2005, including: The O’Reilly Factor, Hannity, Fox & Friends, Your World with Neil Cavuto, Imus, Varney & Co., C-SPAN, CNN, The Laura Ingraham Show, The Mark Levin Show, and hundreds more.

Well-known for his trademark “ambush interviews,” Mattera’s video takedowns of top liberals including Vice President Joe Biden, comedian Chris Rock, NYC Mayor Mike Bloomberg, Senator Al Franken, and former Congressman Barney Frank have gone viral and become Internet legends.

Mattera’s a Brooklyn native who currently resides in Washington, D.C.

When he’s not busy punking liberals, Jason enjoys eating organic foods, recycling his trash, and watching reruns of “The League.”
