I suspect Sammy is rather biased

From 1995:

ABC newsman Sam Donaldson, who owns a sheep ranch in New Mexico, was criticized yesterday by New York's Republican senator for receiving thousands of dollars in federal farm subsidies.

Donaldson said he dislikes the subsidy system but it's part of staying competitive in the sheep business.

Over the last two years, $97,000 in subsidy checks have gone to Donaldson's address in the Virginia suburbs of Washington, the story said. And, under an agricultural conservation cost-sharing program, Donaldson also got $3,500 earlier to defray livestock-watering costs.
