There's a weekend Fox News host, John Scott, who's a nice guy, but he did something on Sunday, April 26, 2020, that no journalist should ever do.

Pavarotti Singing "The Crops are Rotting in the Fields!" aria, aka "Nessun Dorma," from Puccini's Turandot

At least once per year, during a harvest, farmers sing us that song. Previously, it was always to support their demands for cheap, illegal alien labor.
