Saturday Night Live has released yet another tape of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, this time commenting on Time magazine’s selection of Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg as “Person of the Year.”
“Time magazine, always on the cutting edge, discovering Facebook only weeks after your grandmother,” said Bill Hader, playing Assange, after interrupting a message from Zuckerberg.

Assange went on to compare himself to Zuckerberg, debating who deserved the award more.
“I give you private information on corporations for free, and I’m a villain,” he said. “Mark Zuckerberg gives your private information to corporations for money, and he’s ‘Man of the Year.’”
As usual, Assange concluded by saying, no matter how he dies, even if there’s a videotape of him dying peacefully of natural causes, it was still murder.
