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.

On The Line: Nilo Tabrizy Discusses Haiti’s Presidential Turmoil

Follow us on Twitter (https://twitter.com/vicenews) where we’ll announce the next topic for On The Line.

VICE News journalist Nilo Tabrizy (https://twitter.com/ntabrizy) joined On The Line to take your questions about the turmoil over the presidency in Haiti.

Just a week after the departure of Former President Michel Martelly, lawmakers in Haiti have selected Jocelerme Privert as the country’s interim president.

Martelly ended his five-year term on February 7 amid often violent protests over alleged election fraud, and after the opposition candidate boycotted the vote.

The new president’s main task will be to quickly organize fresh elections. The interim government will have a 120-day term but should organize elections by April 24, and hand power over to the winner in May.

On The Line: Kayla Ruble Discusses the Flint Water Emergency

Follow us on Twitter (https://twitter.com/vicenews) where we’ll announce the next topic for On The Line.

VICE News journalist Kayla Ruble (https://twitter.com/RubleKB) joined On The Line to take your questions about lead contaminated water in Flint, MI, and the impact on Flint’s residents.

Earlier this month, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder declared a state of emergency for the city of just under 100,000 people, who are at risk for toxic lead exposure due to citywide contamination in the water system.

Following criticism that clean water was not being distributed efficiently to the city’s residents, the governor called in the National Guard for assistance, and President Barack Obama declared a federal emergency over the weekend, authorizing $5 million of federal assistance, though he stopped short of declaring the crisis a “major disaster.”

Residents across the city had stopped drinking the city water in early 2015, and were forced to purchase bottled water out of their own pocket until state help arrived this month.
