Made a few changes[edit]

Feel free to revert anything I may have incorrectly changed Bladesofhalo 22:50, 22 May 2007 (UTC)

To Whom Belongs[edit]

Who invested money to realize this website? Also, it shows no advertising banners. So how does this site finances itself? I could not find anything about this yet. edit: I researched further and the whois-check shows as owner. This companys slogan is "Your identity is nobodys bussines but ours". Dead end.

Nothing said about the transition from a "shock site".[edit]

Liveleak what is it ... political or shock site?. It's progenitor was certainly known as a shock site. Liveleak seemed to move into the mainstream somehow.

They are both news sites, not shock sites, they both have warnings, shock sites have no such thing. 20:41, 22 July 2007 (UTC)

What's with the logo? Lightspeed venture partners? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:19, 28 February 2008 (UTC)


What about the anti-islam movie "Fitna" by Geert Wilders? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:09, 27 March 2008 (UTC)

It's mentioned there. Jmlk17 06:42, 2 April 2008 (UTC)

Right wing?[edit]

Is there a source for that first adjective? LL doesn't seem to be right-wing; rather, as the article itself says, it aims for neutrality. -- (talk) 07:37, 6 May 2009 (UTC)

I, too, found the intro puzzling and came to the talk page to see if it was part of a back and forth edit dispute. History shows it was added in the most recent edit. I've reverted it because it's unsourced and otherwise unqualified. -- C. A. Russell (talk) 23:19, 12 May 2009 (UTC)
Although I never saw the original inclusion of the term in the article, I think that suggesting or stating that Liveleak has a leaning toward the right is fair enough. Perhaps I should qualify this by saying that the viewers / users who comment there seem to be predominately right wing. A typical example would be any video that mentions guns or gun control: the messages / replies underneath often appear to be written by quite unreasonable people, who seem to think that President Obama is some kind of satanic figure that wants to ruin their lives… Also a quick search will show that the word "liberal" (used perhaps pejoratively) is included in the description of many videos at the site. Whoever originally added the term "right wing" to the article here won't have been the first to recognise this. There's no smoke without fire? (talk) 18:20, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Added a bit about Racial slurs and racism on LiveLeak[edit]

Seems liveleak don't like the word ni**er, but can't really be sure and can't cite anything yet.

Very few people like that word, so I don't see why that would merit inclusion here. Mark Arsten (talk) 17:38, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

I agree, the comment section is extreeeeemely racist, sometimes it's not even worth reading the comments.

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was Moved. Mark Arsten (talk) 17:38, 24 August 2012 (UTC)

LiveleakLiveLeak – The name is stylized as LiveLeak, with two capital L's, on the website and multiple instances in this article. I believe it would be productive to change the name to reflect this stylization.ThunderPower (talk) 19:37, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

  • Support. Seems to be general usage, I see that news articles follow this stylization [1]. --Enric Naval (talk) 22:59, 18 August 2012 (UTC)

US Soldier Section[edit]

What is the point of this section? Does the military restrict access to liveleak too? — Preceding unsigned comment added by ACanadianToker (talkcontribs) 19:38, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

I have since deleted that section.

-U.S. soldiers- Since May 14, 2007, The United States Department of Defense has restricted access to websites such as YouTube and MySpace in order to prevent violations of Operations Security.[1] One can easily watch war footage from Iraq and Afghanistan, which many show videos from soldiers of the United States and other countries.
