Kathleen Carroll, executive editor of the Associated Press, addressed “some missteps” Monday in the news organization’s coverage last week of the Boston marathon attack investigation, including having misreported Wednesday that a suspect was in custody and expected in federal court.

“We took a shellacking, a deserved one, for reporting that a suspect was in custody when, as the hours passed, that information began to look wobbly,” Carroll said in a staff memo, obtained by The Huffington Post.
