SAN FRANCISCO — An appeals court has reinstated a Los Angeles preacher's defamation lawsuit against ABC's news program "20/20."

The Rev. Frederick Price of the Crenshaw Christian Center accuses the TV newsmagazine and reporter John Stossel of playing a clip from his sermon out of context. It appeared to show the leader of the 18,000-member megachurch boasting about his wealth.

John Stossel is usually one of the good guys - I’d have to know more about the case to form an opinion here.

If a preacher has written a few books, its not hard to have accumulated a few dollars. And if you head up an 18000 member church, you’ve probably got a fairly good salary too. A fairly small percentage of a lot is still a lot.

Should put wind in Shirley Sherrod’s sails to sue Breitbart. That’s ok because he should be able to expose Pigford in defense.
