NBC got a lashing from GOP presidential candidate Michele Bachmann over an off-color song played during her appearance on Jimmy Fallon's "Late Night" show this week. She wants NBC to apologize and take immediate disciplinary action. She told Fox News Channel the Fallon show band displayed sexism and bias by playing a snippet of the song "Lyin' Ass B-----" by Fishbone when she was introduced. Fallon tweeted an apology for what he called the "intro mess" but Bachmann says she's surprised NBC did nothing else. She says "This wouldn't be tolerated if it was Michelle Obama."
