Gregg "Opie" Hughes and Anthony Cumia, better known as notorious radio hosts Opie & Anthony, may have just posted online photos of the X-rated penis photo that New York Representative Anthony Wiener doesn't want anyone to see.
The two, who broadcast over Sirius/XM Satellite Radio, along with their sidekick, comedian Jim Norton, today interviewed Andrew Breitbart of Breitbart.com. Breitbart's website initially broke open the story that Congressman Wiener was sending out photos of himself over the Internet, coming under heavy attack from Congressman Wiener for doing so. Over the past few days, Congressman Wiener has admitted to the allegations, but it has come to light that Brietbart claims to have an X-rated photo of Congressman Wiener that he has said that he would only release in the event Congressman Wiener further attacked him.
Apparently, during the interview on the air this morning, Opie and Anthony got a view of a photo on Breitbart's Blackberry that was alleged to be the actual cock shot from Congressman Wiener. Cumia, while viewing the photo, was in view of a webcam, and Internet viewers watching the webstream apparently captured screenshots of the photo that Cumia was watching and notified him of the screen capture. From there, things went viral.
Both Hughes and Cumia separately posted screenshots on Twitter after they started receiving images taken from the screen captures. Hughes' tweet and Cumia's tweet both attached photos of the penis images. The photos spread through the Internet via social media and have now appeared on Gawker as well as Buzzfeed and other sites.
We, of course, have no certainty that these are actually images of Congressman Wiener's package, but they're being represented as such online.
UPDATE: Through several tweets, Gregg "Opie" Hughes" posted the following explanation via his @OpieRadio Twitter account: "We had @AndrewBreitbart on the show today, and we prodded him to see the "pic" that was rumored to be out there. He finally passed his phone around to show a pic of @repweiner 's ... well ... "weiner". I believe it was not @AndrewBreitbart's intention to get the pic out there at this time. As the phone made the rounds around the room to @jimnorton @anthonycumia and myself, the picture was captured by a video camera that was on! I did try to take a pic of @AndrewBreitbart's phone but it came out blurry because @anthonycumia grabbed the phone. Wasn't until @AndrewBreitbart left the studio that we realized what was captured on our video camera." Hughes also clarified that the photo shown on Anthony Cumia's phone is actually a photo of the video screen captures, not the actual Breitbart image.
