Medved attended Palisades High School after his family moved to Los Angeles, California. After matriculating, he then attended Yale University, graduating with honors in 1969, and then went to Yale Law School, where he would spend just a year before leaving to work as a head speechwriter for US Senate candidate Joseph Duffey, after which he continued to work as a speechwriter and political consultant. He moved to advertising, and would help create campaigns to recruit more Hispanics as well as African Americans to police departments in California. He also wrote numerous articles for “The People’s Almanac”, before creating “What Really Happened to the Class of ’65?” which became a bestseller, and led to a weekly television series.

Medved then joined the Writers Guild of America, and some of his next works would include “The Shadow Presidents: The Secret History of the Chief Executives and Their Top Aides”, and “Hospital: The Hidden Lives of a Medical Center Staff”; these books were featured in various television shows, and his net worth started increasing significantly at this point. He then wrote satirical books about movies, including “The Hollywood Hall of Shame”, “The Golden Turkey Awards” and “The Fifty Worst Films of All Time”.

Aside from his writing work, Michael has worked as a movie reviewer for CNN, and the British show “The Worst of Hollywood”. In 1984, he joined the show “Sneak Previews” and would work there for twelve years alongside Jeffrey Lyons. He became the chief film critic for the New York Post in 1993, holding the position for five years.

He’s also done a lot of radio work, mainly focusing on political commentary. He’s written an autobiographical book, focusing on politics in “Right Turns: From Liberal Activist to Conservative Champion in 35 Unconventional Lessons”. He now hosts a three hour daily show which reaches more than 4.75 million listeners weekly, and includes political guests and also features movie reviews. He also writes a regular column for USA Today. One of his latest books is “The 10 Big Lies About America” which was released in 2008. All have helped build his net worth over the years.

For his personal life, it is known that Michael is married to Diane Elvenstar and they have three children. He was diagnosed with throat cancer which led him to take a leave of absence from his radio show in 2015. He is also very active in the Jewish community, and focuses on outreach to help unaffiliated or disconnected Jews.

5Why is the critical fraternity so liberal now? It didn't used to be. There used to be very conservative critics and they put out reviews from a specifically moralistic point of view. What's amazing to me was how that entire voice representing that third of America who consider themselves conservative is basically not represented other than by myself in the film-commentary business.
