The Super Bowl Hoax
RADAR Blows the Whistle on Super Bowl DV Myth

On January 28, 1993, domestic violence advocates threw the long bomb, which in turn set up the winning touchdown.

The long bomb, of course, was the infamous press conference, held three days before the Super Bowl, which claimed that domestic violence increased 40% after men watched professional football games. And the winning touchdown was passage of the first Violence Against Women Act in 1994.

In her book Who Stole Feminism?, Christina Hoff Sommers revealed that the 40% claim was a complete hoax. But that hasn't stopped DV advocates from spreading the myth. RADAR believes it's time to blow the whistle on the Super Bowl myth. So we've developed a blitz strategy, to sack the quarterback before they can lob another long bomb!
