The domestic violence/Superbowl story is a UL that cases of domestic violence go up during the Superbowl because so many more men are drinking and abusing their wives. The writer's theory is that the story gets repeated as a way to get more attention paid to domestic violence by linking it with an event that gets tons of media attention and the "all women" story got repeated in order to draw attention to the progress that women are making by linking it with an event that gets tons of media attention.
