But the Minnesota Congressman wasn't pleased the apology -which she asked for-- didn't come from the president of NBC
Sometimes saying sorry doesn't cut it.
Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann expressed disappointment in how NBC delivered its apology after the network played a profane song during her recent appearance on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon."
Doug Vaughn, NBC's senior vice president for special programs, wrote Bachmann a personal letter on Wednesday. He called the show's choice to play a snippet of Fishbone's "Lyin' Ass B----" as she walked on the show both "unfortunate" and "unacceptable."
But the Minnesota Congressman wasn't pleased the apology -which she asked for-- didn't come from the top.
"Of course I accept the apology but my guess is that it would have been the president of the NBC that would have been apologizing not a senior vice president," had a liberal, like Michelle Obama been the guest, she told KLIF radio in Dallas on Friday.
In the letter, Vaughn offered his apologies and said the band had been "severely reprimanded."
Fallon also apologized via his Twitter account.
When asked if the bandleader should be fired, Bachmann said she didn't want to see another American lose their job, but called the band "disingenuous."
"The comment from the band is that it was a spontaneous act," the Tea Party darling said.
"Clearly it wasn't. It was premeditated. [The bandleader]had tweeted twice before the show what his intentions were. And his Twitter account is 1.7 million people. So, it's just, again, it comes down to the fact that if a Don Imus or someone does something that's questionable, they are thrown off the air. But when something is done to a conservative, it's just passed off and forgotten. "
Bachmann continued, "I'm a serious candidate for the presidency of the United States, but I'm a conservative Republican woman. That's the double standard."
