Michele Bachmann Demands Apology From NBC for Vulgar Song Played During Her Appearance on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’

(Fox News Insider) - GOP candidate Michele Bachmann joined America’s Newsroom Wednesday morning and addressed the controversy surrounding her appearance on ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.’ When Bachmann was introduced on the show earlier this week, Fallon’s house band, the Roots, played Fishbone’s song ‘Lyin’ A** B****.’ Fallon has since apologized. While Bachmann said she accepts the comedian’s apology, she believes that NBC should apologize as well.

Bachmann said, “If that had been Michelle Obama, who’d come out on the stage, and if that song had been played for Michelle Obama, I have no doubt that NBC would have apologized to her and likely they would have fired the drummer, or at least suspended him.”

She believes this show a bias on the part of the media, saying, “This is clearly a form of bias on the part of the Hollywood entertainment elite.”
