A ruling from a US Federal Appeals court on Tuesday says that the New York Times must face a defamation lawsuit from a Louisiana economics professor who claims the newspaper quoted him out of context by saying he said slavery was "not so bad."The plaintiff Walter Block, who teaches at Loyola University, previously spoke with the paper in a January 26, 2014, front page article about libertarianism. Court papers say that Block, a self-described libertarian, said that while he used the words attributed to him, the New York Times reporters Sam Tanenhaus and Jim Rutenberg distorted their meaning by omitting necessary context, making him appear racist.
