NBC apologizes to Bachmann over song
Source: CNN

NBC has apologized to Rep. Michele Bachmann after the house band for "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" played an inappropriate song during her appearance on the show Monday, CNN confirmed Thursday.

Bachmann received a letter Wednesday from Doug Vaughan, NBC's senior vice president for special programs and late night, that apologized for what happened and called the incident "not only unfortunate but also unacceptable," said Alice Stewart, the Republican presidential hopeful's spokeswoman.

According to Stewart, the letter also said the show's band, which played the song "Lyin' Ass Bitch" by Fishbone as Bachmann first appeared on stage, was "severely reprimanded."

"She accepted the apology," Stewart told CNN Thursday.

In fact, as the AP reported, Democratic Rep. Nita Lowey also called for NBC to apologize.

1. And anyday now, Fox News will apologize to every Democrat that they have visciously maligned
over the past, well, forever! I guess it is good that NBC did apologize but excuse me if I still think that this was pretty damn funny.

3. I'm waiting for him to be banned from broadcasting for having recently called Michelle 'uppity'
But that's not going to happen either.

11. Good! It was inappropriate. Even though I detest Bachmann.
As was said in the other thread, no woman - regardless of how offensive she is - should be called a bitch.
