Greta Van Susteren, a broadcast veteran of CNN, Fox News and MSNBC, is ready for her next act — a mobile app — the details of which she announced on Wednesday in a lengthy Facebook post.
“Chances are you may need my new APP (at least once in a while) or know someone who does need it (and maybe more than once in a while!) I know I have needed this APP,” she said.
Though Van Susteren noted that app design was a totally new venture for her, she said she wanted to try something new and dove into the project after leaving Fox News in September 2016.
So what is the app?
According to Van Susteren, it’s a platform that will allow people to accept or reject apologizes between their friends privately or publicly for celebrities. The app will be called “Sorry.”
As she puts it:
You will get to ‘accept or reject’ apologies from a friend (kept private between you and your friend) or ‘accept or reject’ apologies of public figures which we ALL get to see and vote to accept or reject. We all get to see what others think about accept or reject of public apologies when we see the numbers roll in on those very public apologies. Eg, imagine if you and everyone else got to vote ‘accept or reject’ when Kathy Griffin apologized? Was it enough? or not? And how would she know if her apology was accepted without the vote counter? Or how about when a cable news network apologizes for a blunder? A politician for cheating on a spouse? Dove Soap for that commercial? Facebook is sorry about the Russia stuff? LA Times columnist apologizes for description of Sarah Huckabee. Accept or reject? Even India’s biggest airline is apologizing today. It is just endless
Van Susteren says she hopes it will one day be as popular as AOL.
“You know ‘you’ve got mail,'” she writes. “Well … I am hoping people will start saying ‘you need the APP.'”
We’ll keep you updated on the IPO.
