Glenn Beck: Boston Bombing Is A Reason To Buy Gold

"You better have a plan and know what you and your family are going to do in the time of more difficult days ahead." Goldline is a sponsor of Glenn Beck's cable network The Blaze. UPDATE: A source close to the show says, “This is 100% not true."

"The only thing I have to fear is the government, quite frankly. The government lying to you, the media not telling the truth. I mean, gold is the original gold standard, and something doesn't smell right. Such a currency of last resort that it's so unstable that the central banks are buying it up."

"Let's say this turns out to be a terrorist operation with multiple bombs around the city. The stock market tanking, things going awry — wouldn't this exactly be like how it would happen? September 11, now that we are in this precarious situation, this is the way it will happen — it will happen really, really quickly. You better have a plan and know what you and your family are going to do in the time of more difficult days ahead."

A source close to the show responded to BuzzFeed:

"This is 100% not true. Glenn did a segment on his radio show about the decline in gold in the morning and wrote a monologue at 8am for his T.V. show about why gold prices are dropping – over six hours before he even learned of the tragedy in Boston. Then during his show, after he finished his monologue, he listed a variety of things that can destabilize the country including attacks and a stock market collapse."

A BuzzFeed News investigation, in partnership with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, based on thousands of documents the government didn't want you to see.
