In some versions of a Nov. 24, 2010, story about Thanksgiving holiday security at U.S. airports, The Associated Press wrongly attributed a comment supporting more invasive screening measures to AP reporter Ted Shaffrey. It was a traveler interviewed by Shaffrey who said, "Tell all the people whining about getting patted down to remember 9/11. They're all whine-bags." In a paragraph attached to the story, Shaffrey was correctly listed one of the AP journalists who contributed to the report.
