Bill O’Reilly 1; Sean Spicer 0; April Ryan ∞

You know who apologized, credibly and quickly, for trivializing the professional contributions of a distinguished black woman, Representative Maxine Waters, and went on to engage seriously with her ideas? Bill O’Reilly, a man whose job it is to be somewhat uncouth and provocative.

You know who didn’t apologize for trivializing the professional contributions of a disinguished black woman, reporter April Ryan, chided like she was a mulish toddler on the very same day? Press secretary Sean Spicer, a man representing the voice of the President of the United States, and by extension all of us.

He did call on her first at Wednesday’s Q&A.

She grilled him on Devin Nunes. Because she is a pro.
