I liked it much better when it was the Wild West. LiveLeak has been a mainstay of internet culture for many years, its name synonymous with footage of murder, terrorism, and everyday incidents of crime and violence. Official statements from those involved sometimes ync gore its content in terms of newsworthiness or truth-telling.
When the site attracted controversy in the UK for hosting footage of children fighting, for example, Hewitt defended sharing the videos as a form of bearing witness. Despite this, the site often changed its policies concerning controversial footage. A report from The New York Times noted that web tracking firm Alexa ranked it as the th most popular website in the world, putting it roughly on a par with mainstream sites like The Onion and Jezebel. The same report cites an academic study by Sue Tait that attempts to explain the enduring popularity of such violent and gory content.
The range of justifications identified by Tait and other academics suggest that demand for such extreme content will always exist, even if individual sites like LiveLeak come and go. Lastly, to those no longer with us.
