This morning, Fox News sent an incredibly strange and unproductive push notification through Apple News which simply read:
“Most men just want a woman who’s nice.”
No quotations, no link, no anything. Just a simple little phrase.
Good to know, Fox News. Thank you! This was urgent breaking news and I’m glad to have read it.
It turns out the notification was for an article with the same title, where the main bullet point seems to be “women, be nice to men.”
“Most husbands have no desire to lord over their wives, but they don’t want to fight with them either. All they want is peace,” Suzanne Venker charitably writes in the article. “And the nicer you are, the more likely they are to find it.”
Thankfully, Twitter was not having it and they had themselves a field day with this “message.”
