Homer was accused of sexually harassing a babysitter by grabbing her butt, when in reality, he was only grabbing a Gummi Venus de Milo that had gotten stuck to the back of her pants. When a protestors' shantytown and a media circus formed at the Simpson house, Godfrey Jones called Homer and offered him a chance to explain his side of the story. Jones interviewed Homer, but the interview was heavily and poorly edited to make Homer look like more of a pervert and to convey the impression that Homer physically attacked Jones. The show aired Homer's story under the title "Babysitter and the Beast."
Rock Bottom has a pattern of missing the mark where the truth is concerned, in the interest of pursuing a sensationalized story. The show was forced to run a long list of corrections, including a retraction of its accusations against Homer.
Other stories aired by Rock Bottom include the following:
- A report on Sasquatch (which Homer considered to be "fair and even-handed").
- A "sex farm" where the farmer claims to be only growing sorghum, but the hookers are "'round back."
- A "foreigner" (Groundskeeper Willie) who takes voyeuristic and perverted videos of unsuspecting people (aired under the title "Rowdy Roddy Peeper").
