SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Let me ask you one last question on the morals and ethics of this. I actually do applaud, you've exposed a lot about our government that I am appreciative of as a citizen, because I think there have been things that have been going on that we need to know about, and I hope it wakes people up. What do you -- where do you draw a line in terms of the right to citizens, private citizens, or people even in the public to have privacy?
JULIAN ASSANGE: Well, look, we publish information from political parties and governments. We're not interested in information from private individuals, unless they're billionaires or trying to manipulate or drive the political system in some way. So people don't need to worry about WikiLeaks being interested in that. But for these big, corrupt organizations, you know, dodgy politicians and so on, we just say what they say. If you've got nothing to hide, you've got nothing to fear. What's their problem in the public knowing the truth? Because that's all we publish. There's no allegations that we haven't been completely accurate.
HANNITY: That's 100 percent true
