Liveleak basically shows horrifying content that basic other media channels do not show, as a result, the audience is not aware of the fact that anything so horrifying can happen in today’s world.
This is people’s choice that they want to see such disastrous stuff or not but at least they have an option if they want to see the reality.

In an interview Hewitt told that slowly death threat was becoming more and more for uploading “Fitna”, and then they also knew his full name, where he lived and all the information about him. so he had to take a decision to shut down the site only for 48 hours, till the time he was preparing that nobody could hurt him and his family. But later they re-uploaded the video, but after that, they had to remove or discard it because of the copyright claims on the video.
an interviewer asked Hewitt why he chose to disclose his identity when the rest of them chose not to. so he replied that the nameless website does not look good.
Hewitt was once been invited by famous Britain’s current affairs program so that he could discuss and tell everybody why he did not ban any horrifying videos to be posted when all other websites and social media sites were against them, and what was Liveleaks policy.
according to him Liveleaks videos not impacted their audience in a wrong way nor has any positive impact but it is the reality that is going on in today’s world.
