This weekend's opening sketch featured cast member Bill Hader as Australian Assange, introducing his latest scandal-sleuthing project, "WikiLeaks: TMZ."
"Hello, America, I'm Julian Assange, founder of WikiLeaks, and I've taken over your airwaves," announces Assange as he interrupts a speech by President Obama (Fred Armisen). "This week, my organization released thousands of classified cables, revealing embarrassing details about the international diplomatic community. The leaks did not inspire revolution as I had hoped so tonight I present a new WikiLeaks, where the leaks are even more embarrassing and the details are even more sordid."
That project is "WikiLeaks: TMZ."
Assange is then seen in a newsroom a la "TMZ" host Harvey Levin with his team informing him of the latest scandals they've captured on camera.
Among the gems: Muammar Gaddafi (Armisen) leaving a Libyan restaurant with his sexy Ukranian nurse (Kristen Wiig), who reveals that she's also a prostitute; Afghanistan president Hamid Karzai claiming he doesn't take bribes as his briefcase splits open and cash spills out; and Hillary Clinton (Vanessa Bayer) exiting a car in a skirt, which reveals that she's not wearing underwear.
Before launching into "SNL's" signature "Live from New York…" and introducing host Robert DeNiro, Assange reminds viewers, "No matter how I die, it was murder."
