In the Dead Media Archive, under Broadcasting: A Case Study in the Death of Liveness, it states that “from the dawn of radio through the early days of television, liveness was considered a marker of quality”. So what I’d like to know is if we still use liveness as a “marker of quality”? I know that towards the end of the article it states that liveness as we once knew it has changed, but in terms of the different types of programs and events, do we still hold some at a higher standard because of their “liveness”? Is it because we associate them with the highbrow culture?
