The Juice Media
December 17, 2010
Juice Media Rap News, with Robert Foster. Episode 6 of the Investigative Rap Journalism has dropped: December 2010 and Cablegate has burst open. With a steady trickle of Diplomatic communiques leaking out every single day, the Book of Revelations is expanding dramatically. In all the hubbub, the global community is forced to ask questions of its leaders. At the same time, perhaps a stronger focal point for international attention is the Wikileaks leader, the elusive Julian Assange, whose impact on the global scene is testing the limits of freedom of the press. How will governmental representatives from North America, Europe and the Middle East react to having their dirty laundry leaked? Is it all just an insidious Blue Beam Psi-Ops plot hypnotically seeded by MK Ultra, the Rhodes Scholars and the TriLateral Commission? Will the world ever be the same again? Join your affable host Robert Foster, as he executes a rhyme inquisition on some of the key players in the Wiki-saga. It's diplomatic Rhym-aggedon...
JULIAN ASSANGE INTERRUPTS SNL TO EXPLAIN WHY HE SHOULD BE TIME'S PERSON OF THE YEAR

The more notorious Julian Assange becomes, the more fun Bill Hader seems to have with the character. He interrupted a message from Mark Zuckerberg on last night’s Saturday Night Live in order to demonstrate why he should be Time’s Person of the Year. “Thanks to WikiLeaks, you can see how corrupt governments operate in the shadows,” he said between muahahas. “Thanks to Facebook, you can figure out which Sex and the City character you are.”
Yet despite his sneering, it seems that Assange ended up taking the quiz anyway. “I’m a Samatha,” the alleged Lothario said. “But if the Swedish police ask, “I’m a Charlotte.”
He also included a couple of barbs at how differently WikiLeaks and Facebook define “invasion of privacy.” His organization reveals corporate tidbits to consumers for free, while Zuckerberg’s company inverses the equation, selling your personal information to corporations.
But that’s heavy stuff. So we mostly got more jokes: “If you want to make a movie about Mark Zuckerberg, you’ll have to make stuff up,” went his routine. “If you want to make a movie about me, just to rate it R, you’ll have to leave stuff out.”
And so forth! You can see the rest of the budding stand-up comic’s act in the NBC clip below. [at link above]
