Correction Request: KTLA "Unclear" On How X-Rated #Weinergate Photo Was Published

KTLA’s recent article on Congressman Anthony Weiner’s x-rated photo is incorrect on how the photo came to be published on the Internet.

Breitbart said he was not going to publish the photo to his website, BigGovernment.com, but it’s not clear if he approved of the radio hosts’ decision to tweet it.

The article was written after Andrew Breitbart posted this statement on the website by KTLA, Big Government.


This morning, I showed a photograph, which our source claims Weiner sent her, to radio hosts “Opie and Anthony” of the Sirius XM radio network on my mobile device. Somehow, without my knowledge or permission, apparently a picture was taken of my mobile device, and subsequently published by Opie (Gregg Hughes) on Twitter.

His co-host, Anthony (Anthony Cumia), stated today:

“In regards to the photo of Anthony Weiner that was leaked by members of The Opie And Anthony show on 6/8, I want to make it clear that Andrew Breitbart had no knowledge that this photo was being made public. A phone with the photo was being displayed and a camera in the studio caught it. It was then uploaded to twitter [sic], again, without Andrew Breitbarts [sic] knowledge.”

We’d appreciate KTLA’s correction of this article.
