NBC apologizes to Bachmann for Fallon song choice
Bachmann official: NBC exec apologizes for Fallon show song that GOP candidate called bias
By The Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) ' GOP Presidential candidate Michele Bachmann has received an apology from an NBC executive after an off-color song was played during her appearance on Jimmy Fallon's "Late Night" show.

Bachmann spokeswoman Alice Stewart told The Associated Press late Wednesday that the Minnesota congresswoman received a personal letter from Doug Vaughan, NBC's vice president for late night programming.

The band played a snippet of a 1985 Fishbone song as Bachmann walked onstage for Tuesday's show. The song's title uses an expletive to refer to a woman who lies.



Stewart says Vaughn wrote that the incident was "not only unfortunate but also unacceptable." She says the executive offered his sincerest apologies and said the band had been reprimanded.

Stewart also says Jimmy Fallon apologized to Bachmann when they spoke earlier Wednesday and called the host "extremely nice."
