WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been named "Man of the Year" by France's Le Monde newspaper, one of the five publications to co-operate with the whistleblowing website on its latest release of leaked documents. Visitors to the newspaper's website voted in favour of Assange, with 56 per cent backing him for the honour, compared to 22 per cent for jailed Chinese dissident and Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo and 6.9 per cent for American Facebook President Mark Zuckerberg. Time magazine last week named Zuckerberg its "Person of the Year".
