The NFL on Domestic Abuse

Hosted by

Last Sunday during the Super Bowl, the NFL aired a chilling Public Service Announcement about domestic violence. The camera shows images of the interior of a house, where it looks like a fight just happened, and you can hear the voice of a 911 dispatcher talking to a woman who’s pretending to order a pizza so her abuser won’t know who she’s really calling. The PSA got a lot of attention, and the NFL got a lot of praise for it. But writer Diana Moskovitz has been looking into the NFL’s anti-domestic violence campaign, and she’s not impressed.
