2018 Was All About “The Line” — And Everyone Who Crossed It (HBO)

This year was a difficult one for the concept we refer to as “the line.” Plenty of people, platforms, and memes, managed to cross it, often without realizing — or admitting they’d realized — the line was ever there.

YouTube’s enfant terrible, Logan Paul, rang in the new year crossing the line when he published his vlog of a trip to Japan’s so-called Suicide Forest, stumbling across an apparent suicide victim. It wasn’t until Paul uploaded a video a month later in which he tasered a dead rat that YouTube thought the line had been crossed far enough for ad revenue to be disabled on his videos — though just temporarily. The whole experience forced Paul to look inward and realize that the only true path to redemption was obvious: a pay-per-view boxing match between himself and another YouTuber.

Tide Pods began their year as a laundry product, but within a week, the Tide Pod Challenge had launched a thousand explainers, and morphed into just another reason for baby boomers to write off an entire generation.

Tech platforms wrestled with where to draw the line all year when it came to policing content, as seen in the case of Alex Jones. It took Apple deleting five podcasts connected with Alex Jones from its iTunes store for Facebook to finally act, deleting four of his pages, with Twitter following with its ban soon after.

So as the year wraps up, here’s our attempt at cataloguing all the lines crossed this year. And here’s to the new year, full of hope and possibility — and so, so many lines, yet-to-be-crossed.

Alex Jones Can’t Stop Screaming | Alex Jones Master Class Part 4

Sometimes words are simply too constricting of a medium for Alex Jones’s fury, so in the fourth and final installment of the Alex Jones master class we compile his screams in a semi-comprehensive way.

For anyone unfamiliar with the far-right radio personality and Infowars founder, Jones has claimed that Sept. 11 and the Sandy Hook massacre were inside jobs, that Obama wore a secret Muslim ring, and that juice boxes turn children into homosexuals. He also happens to have the ear of the president of the United States of America. In this series, however, we won’t be examining Jones’ political beliefs. Rather, we’ll be looking at the gravel-voiced Texan’s other most notable quality: his flair for theatrics.

Jones’s on-air persona owes more to Howard Beale, the fictional character from “Network” than most pundits or journalists. In the 1976 satire, Peter Finch plays Beale, a failing news anchor whose ratings get a much-needed boost after suffering an on-air nervous breakdown. In the film’s most enduring moment Beale fumes: “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore.”

Alex Jones Is The Master Of Impersonations | Alex Jones Master Class Part 3

In addition to bringing attention to the so-called “Globalists,” a vague and shadowy cabal Jones believes is planning to annihilate humanity, he embraces his role as an entertainer with a finely tuned comic sensibility. Perhaps his favorite satiric tool is as old as the art form itself –the impression.

In his impressions, Jones takes on an eclectic group of public figures, including Bernie Sanders, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rachel Maddow, and William F. Buckley. While many a stand-up has made a career out of impressions, Jones takes a different tactic, often impersonating the “spirit” of his targets instead of their actual mannerisms.

But don’t worry if you have trouble figuring out who’s being mocked, Jones always lets his audience know who he’s impersonating.

For anyone unfamiliar with the radio personality and Infowars founder, Jones has claimed that 9/11 and the Sandy Hook massacre were inside jobs, Obama wore a secret Muslim ring, and juice boxes turn children gay. He also happens to have the ear of the President of the United States of America.

In this series, however, we will not be examining any of Jones’s political beliefs, rather we are going to look at the gravelly-voiced Texan’s other most notable quality: his flair for theatrical presentation.
