Howard Welinsky, who ..., 26 Mar 2015 [cached]
Howard Welinsky, who graduated UCLA in 1972, is an executive at Warner Bros. Pictures and an active volunteer lobbyist for the university in Sacramento politics, reaching out to politicians on legislation related to academic funding and University of California policies that impact UCLA. An article from the spring 2001 issue of UCLA magazine describes Welinsky as an "alumnus hero with titanium-hard loyalty," whose two biggest political passions are Israel and higher education. His and his wife's (also an alumnus) connection to UCLA is so deep that the couple's wedding nearly 12 years ago was held on campus. And in November, Welinsky made a $100,000 matching gift to the school after 2,200 people donated to a fundraising campaign before a UCLA-USC football game.
"Occasionally I interview college students for internships here [at Warner Bros.]," Welinsky said in a telephone interview from his Burbank office. "And if they're Jewish, I typically ask the question, whatever campus they came from, what the climate on campus is like."
Welinsky believes the environment at UCLA for pro-Israel students is "more challenging" than it was when he was a student more than 40 years ago, but that it's simply a reality Jewish and pro-Israel students face on most American campuses.
"Jewish students need to get a spine to deal with BDS," Welinsky said. "I would hope Jewish students become informed on the issues and learn the skills of organizing and coalition politics."
Welinsky said the news media - particularly MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, who was so outraged at the line of questioning in the Beyda hearing, that he said on air, "Why don't they just tell her [Beyda] that they have to wear a patch when she walks around campus, a Star of David? - has blown recent events at UCLA out of proportion and that Jewish applicants should speak with Jewish UCLA students before making any judgment about the campus climate. "You can't rely, with all due respect, on what you read in the media to tell you what's going on," Welinsky said.

Howard Welinsky, a prominent Democratic donor in Los Angeles who is an executive at Warner Bros., said Waxman can expect a torrent of cash from his friends in the entertainment, pro-Israel and liberal communities, many of whom have long regarded the congressman as a leader.
"Henry Waxman is extremely important to Los Angeles and to the country," said Welinsky, who sent the congressman a check over the weekend.
"You can't wake up on the first Wednesday in November and discover that someone as important as Henry Waxman had a bad result," Welinsky said.

Welinsky: I'm not immediately affected. But the state is affected. The community is affected.
Howard, I'll start with you.
Welinsky: Well, the biggest risk really is the lack of developed talent, that we [will be forced to] educate less students in an environment where we're so highly competitive with the world.
Welinsky: That has really hurt us in the Legislature, because one of the things that reverberated was the notion that the UC has all these alternative sources of revenue: "You guys can get along better than everyone else who only depends upon state funds."
