War is no longer something read in dispatches, it comes straight into the living room. Take a website like LiveLeak, which has become popular with soldiers from both sides of the divide in both Afghanistan and IraqIraq. Operational documentary material, from their mobile phones or laptops, is posted on the site in real time.

LiveLeak

Uk-based video sharing website

A video sharing website that is headquartered in the London, England.

Article



LiveLeak is a video sharing website that is headquartered in London, England and was founded on October 31, 2006 by the same development team that created Orgish.com; a website for graphic video content meant to shock its users. The only known founding member of LiveLeak is Hayden Hewitt, all other founding members of LiveLeak have chosen to remain anonymous. Hewitt commented on why him and his team shutdown Orgish.com and launched LiveLeak by saying:

Ogrish had gone as far as it could go. It had become a parody of itself. Ogrish was a very serious site, it wasn’t like a lot of the gore sites you might see now that are based off that model. It was tremendously serious, everything was researched, there was no laughing at dead people or anything like that, the community was actually remarkably reserved.

LiveLeak allows users to upload and share videos of all kinds, however, the platform has a focus on video content regarding current events, politics, and reality-based footage. The company claims to have a strict non-bias approach to content that is found on its platform.
