* StrawFeminist: Averted. Ashley Grant (who falsely accuses Homer of sexual harassment) does feel that men can easily be manipulated by women and she does think Homer grabbed her butt in the car, but when she sees video evidence of what really happened, she realized that she jumped the gun and apologizes.

* TakeThat: The whole episode is a scathing satire on what the writers called "the tabloidization of the media". "Rock Bottom" directly spoofs the investigative show ''Hard Copy'', with many of the tactics shown onscreen, such as setting up camps outside people's homes, things ''Hard Copy'' would ''actually'' do. The ShowWithinAShow "Ben" is the embodiment of the writers' feeling that all it takes to host such a show is a microphone and an audience.

** The line listed under InsaneTrollLogic serves as a good one to the sort of emotion-driven appeals that media talking heads typically resort to when the facts are either unavailable or not on their side.

** Played straight with ''Rock Bottom'' who demonized Homer by ManipulativeEditing his honest talk with them. All ''Rock Bottom'' does is a very grudgingly and obscurely confession to many of their sham reports (but does not actually confess to their ManipulativeEditing or any dishonesty regarding their coverage of Homer or many others). They even continue to demonize in the end. At least, the reporters and women's rights protesters admitted they were wrong.

* EasilyCondemned: The only people who believe Homer didn't do it 100% throughout the whole episode are the kids -- even Marge starts to believe it at one point that with the hefty bombardment of media around the incident (and she's embarrassed to admit it. Homer feels pretty devastated when he hears it).

* FamilyUnfriendlyAesop: Women, if you think you've been sexually harassed, don't tell anyone, because you're probably wrong and will ruin an innocent man's life if you make a big deal out of it.
