Are there any Wikipedia articles which annoy you where a citation is incorrectly quoted?

For the article on the Ninth Amendment, it says Professor Laurence Tribe shares this view: "It is a common error, but an error nonetheless, to talk of 'ninth amendment rights.' The ninth amendment is not a source of rights as such; it is simply a rule about how to read the Constitution."[8] Likewise, Justice Antonin Scalia has expressed the same view, in Troxel v. Granville (2000)

If they actually read Justice Scalia's full dissent thoroughly, they'd see he said I do not believe that the power which the Constitution confers upon me as a judge entitles me to deny legal effect to laws that (in my view) infringe upon what is (in my view) that unenumerated right.

Justice Scalia believes the ninth amendment is a source of rights; he's just too much of a coward to affirm them or give a better reason to deny them than "states can legislate better than the nation".
