Ok, we all know youtube is the juggernaut of online video. Well, except my mom who points to her living room television when I ask her if she saw "that" video on youtube. No ma, "you tube, not "your tube". Sigh....never mind. At least she knows what facebook is I suppose.
Anyways, I'm going off track again here, where was I? Oh yeah, Youtube, king of all net video sites, now becoming " king of all censored video sites". Even when you sign in, some videos that you may want to see, even if it is morally, ethically wrong, and downright sickening, who the hell is youtube (ahem...cough!! Google)
to be my daddy and tell me what I can and cannot watch. This IS the freedom of the internet right? Now I agree that any disgusting videos that involve children obviously should be never allowed and also reported to authorities. But when youtube banishes an atheist video or actively censors videos on political subjects, then it's time to shop around for your entertainment fixes. Actually, after the second time I got "rickrolled" I was on the hunt for a new site. Once being rickrolled is amusing, after 2 or 3 rickrolls you know what, I get it ok. Haha you got me on that one mister rickroller, you clever little man. Now can I see the new Thor movie trailer? Ok, end of rant, sorry about that. This is where liveleak.com comes in. Liveleak has much of the same as youtube except, as far as I know they haven't started actively censoring videos. I could be wrong, but anything that couldn't be brought up on youtube I've managed to find on liveleak, such as real combat war videos from Iraq ,The Gaza strip etc.. The only thing that I don't like about liveleak is their internal search site engine, It's sometimes not very accurate, but probably won't matter unless you're looking for some weird obscure stuff, but If you are, I know a few sites where you can find that too....uh, I mean I know this really weird dude who knows where to find obscure weird videos. Well, anyways I hope liveleak remains the same and doesn't pussy out like the way youtube (cough google) did, otherwise we would have to go shopping for another source of video entertainment and to find one that is actually decent.
