Meet Bob Gatty:  Editor, Publisher & Podcast Host

For many years, Bob worked as a writer, editor and communications consultant, focusing on government and politics. He began as a home town journalist, then worked for United Press International in its heyday covering state politics in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. In the beginning, He launched his career at The Pittsburgh Courier, an African American weekly, where he covered crime and the courts.

Tempted by the allure of Washington, DC and big-time politics, Bob became press secretary and chief of staff for two Congressmen -- first Republican Edwin B. Forsythe, and then Democrat James J. Florio, who later became governor of New Jersey.

After seven years on Capitol Hill, he opened a communications business in Washington, first providing political media consulting to candidates and then Washington coverage for business and trade magazines, plus communications consulting services for trade associations.

Gatty's passion now is the Lean to the Left network, which includes the blog, two podcasts, a video channel, and books.

Lean to the Left includes commentary on timely topics from the perspective someone who used to be a political insider, but is now on the outside looking in. Several additional, extremely talented writers also contribute blogs to Lean to the Left. While our blogs are fact-based, they also reflect our own perspective -- which usually means "A Little Lean to the Left."

Hijacked Nation

In August, 2020, Gatty and co-author Chris Waldron, a frequent Lean to the Left contributor, published "Hijacked Nation-Donald Trump's Attack on America's Greatness," a diary of Trump's failed presidency and the tragic consequences for our nation.
