WikiLeaks Turns Into 'TMZ' On 'Saturday Night Live' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

This weekend's "Saturday Night Live" continued to nail its politically-minded cold openings this season with a swipe at WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. In a spot-on parody of popular celebrity gossip show "TMZ," host Harvey Levin is replaced with Assange, who uses the "TMZ" staff to expose his latest embarrassing findings about world leaders including Muammar Gaddafi, Hamid Karzai and Hillary Clinton. The "TMZ" format works especially well for WikiLeaks, especially when Joe Biden gets involved.
