Tuesday, May 6, just after 2 PM EDT.

Promo for upcoming item on 'Day to Day' for a piece called "What's a Farm Without Fallow Fields?":

(paraphrasing this part):
US farmers are giving up government subsidies and growing crops of fallow land. (/paraphrase)

"Sounds good, right? Not if you're an 'environmentalist'!"

And that line was said in a snotty way, definitely intended to belittle the entire group of Americans that identify themselves with that tag.

The rest of their blurbs for this story, and the story itself had little of that tone, which made that promo sound even worse.
