Bernard Weinraub (born December 19, 1937) is an American journalist and playwright.

Early life

Weinraub was born in 1937 in New York City.[1][2] His parents were immigrants from Eastern Europe.[2] He graduated from the City University of New York (CUNY) with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English.[2] He worked as a foreign correspondent for most of his career with the New York Times including home bases in Saigon, London, Nairobi and New Delhi.[2]


He worked as a reporter for The New York Times.[3] He started as a courier in his twenties, eventually being assigned as a foreign correspondent in Saigon, London, Belfast, Nairobi, New Delhi, then Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles.[2][3] From 1991 to 2004, he covered the film industry in Los Angeles.[2]

He retired in 2005, publishing an article about Hollywood and its values.[4][5][4]


As a playwright, he published his first play, The Accomplices, in 2007.[2][5] It talked about the refusal of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's administration to admit more Jews during World War II despite their persecution and genocide in Nazi Germany.[2] The play was performed both in New York and Los Angeles.[2] It was nominated for a Drama Desk Award.[2] However, it received a bad review from The New York Times.[5]

His second play, out in 2014, was Above the Fold.[2][5] Based on the Duke lacrosse case, it shows the struggles of an African American journalist who realizes the scandal is phony while covering it.[2][5] It premiered at the Pasadena Playhouse in Pasadena, California.[2][5] It was directed by Steven Robman and the lead actress was Taraji P. Henson.[1]

Personal life

He has been married twice.[3] He has two children, son Jesse Nicholas and daughter Claire from his first marriage to Judith Weinraub.[3] He met Amy Pascal, a movie executive, at The Peninsula Beverly Hills in 1996; they got married in 1997.[1][3][5] They reside in Brentwood, a Western suburb of Los Angeles, California, with their son Anthony.[3][4]
