I know im really late but

Liveleak was a video sharing site that could show stuff that was considered really NSFW. It had things like recordings of terrorists executing people, the military bombing innocent civilians, Nazis commiting hate crimes, young children being forced to fight in underground battles for money and basically exposed the seedy underbelly of the world. It was controversial but it helped all quadrants.

from the wikipedia page "LiveLeak aimed to freely host real footage of politics, war, and many other world events and to encourage and foster a culture of citizen journalism".

because anyone could post, it basically revealed a lot of stuff and caused scandals. there were videos of all political sides doing terrible stuff and people used it as evidence of an awful regime, law or living conditions. It showed how things really were no matter how bad, and even though some of the vilest videos on the internet are on there it it showed parts of real life and exposed corrupt stuff.
