Lobbyist

Time Warner supremo Steve Ross is becoming a strong presence on the D.C. lobbying scene. Ross, who pushed hard for passage of a cable tv reregulation bill last year, recently phoned members of Congress to urge passage of the Persian Gulf war resolution. Among the members called by Ross was Sen. Bob Graham (D-Fla.). Graham’s aide said the last Hollywoodite to lobby the lawmaker was Tom Selleck, who asked for support for Robert Bork’s Supreme Court nomination.
