Obama's Press Secretary Robert Gibbs Disses Reporter April Ryan (Photo, Video)

April Ryan, of American Urban Radio, stepped on some toes today when she insisted on an answer from White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.  Ryan wanted to know the role, if any, of the White House social secretary Desiree Rogers in the gate-crasher controversy.

The gate-crasher controvery involved two uninvited guests who managed to talk their way into Obama's first state dinner, then pose with both Obama and Biden for pictures.  The controversy has resulted in putting some careers on the line as two Secret Service agents have been suspended over the incident.  Some say that the male crasher has ties to Palestinian terror organizations.  The crashers appear to have had no motive other than publicity for themselves, but the outcome could have been much worse.

Press Secretary Gates refused to answer Ryan's questions and condescendingly scolded her as one would a child.
