SNL's Bill Hader was back again this week as Julian Assange, this time around taking a shot at Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg winning Time Magazine's "Person of the Year."

Tonight, I take a moment to congratulate Time Magazine on the excellent selection of Mark Zuckerberg as Person of the Year. Time Magazine, always on the cutting edge... discovering Facebook only weeks after your grandmother.

What are the differences between Mark Zuckerberg and me? Let's take a look. I give you private information on corporations for free and I'm a villain. Mark Zuckerberg gives your private information to corporations for money, and he's man of the year.

Thanks to WikiLeaks, you can see how corrupt governments operate in the shadows and then lie to those who elect them. Thanks to Facebook, you can figure out which Sex and the City character you are.

I’m a Samantha, but if the Swedish police ask, I’m a Charlotte.

If you want to make a movie about Mark Zuckerberg interesting, you’ll have to make stuff up. In order to make a movie about me, just to rate it R, you’ll have to leave stuff out.

Can you help us out?

For 17 years we have been exposing Washington lies and untangling media deceit, but now Facebook is drowning us in an ocean of right wing lies. Please give a one-time or recurring donation, or buy a year's subscription for an ad-free experience. Thank you.
