‘Glenn Beck’ Sponsor Under Investigation by Authorities and by ABC News

Jul 20, 2010  •  Post A Comment

ABC investigative reporter Brian Ross has taken aim at one of the main sponsors of Fox News Channel’s "The Glenn Beck Show," reports The Huffington Post.

On Monday’s episode of "Nightline," Ross launched a report on Goldline, contending that the on-camera counsel of Beck to invest in gold in these recessionary financial times is unethical given the advertising revenue provided by gold purveyors such as Goldline.

New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, interviewed for the ABC report, called the connection an "unholy alliance."

Goldline is also under investigation by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, according to the Huffington Post story.

ABC is not investigating Beck directly. "Glenn Beck has nothing to do with our investigation,” ABC said in its report. “Our investigation is about transactions with individual customers and the complaints that they’ve raised. And politics really has nothing to do with it. It’s all about consumer protection for us."

Authorities in Los Angeles have received more than 100 complaints against Goldline from consumers, the Huffington Post story says.

  1. Anyone who listens to Beck knows his honest soft-sell pitch: “Buying gold may not be the right thing for everyone …” The ad is written so he is not touting it as an investment. 100 complaints? That seems small. And Rep. Weiner’s reputation is not above suspicion.

  2. Doug,
    Beck is paid for his opinions and will say whatever the person writing the check asks him to say. When he was on CNN he complained about the current healthcare system. He switched to Fox and it is the greatest system on the planet. He is a con man and you are one of his 3 million victims.
    Also, 100 complaints of being ripped off is small, unless you are one of the victims.

  3. The recommendation I am giving always to all my pupils is more than all to study the music profoundly… music is like the sea, and the instruments are small or bigger islands, very delightful for the flowers and trees.
