LiveLeak.com is a site where video footage various folks don't want you to see is aggregated in one sprawling, challenging, terrifying place. Between the CNN/YouTube presidential debate buzz and sites like LiveLeak we can see leading indicators into the potential role interactive media and digital video can play in shaping the nature of discourse in modern societies. Imagine - a participatory democracy. Oh right we have one. Oh right, no we don't.
I found LiveLeak again through stories about "Juba the Sniper". "Juba" is either a person or persons who create video footage (or "snuff propaganda") of American troops in Iraq being slain by sniper fire. Disturbing stuff. American troops were apparently posting there own "nyaah-nyaah you missed me" videos on YouTube...but with the US govt shutting down access to YouTube for troops stuck over there, LiveLeak has become a jarring outlet for their voices.
