Why Didn’t TBD Mention Nick’s Organic Farm?

If you were watching TBD tonight and were heartened to see coverage of a soccer field controversy in Montgomery County, you might have been surprised by the piece.  It showed farmer Nick Maravell, but it made no mention of Nick's Organic Farm being the unique resource that it is, or even being organic.

Instead, the segment portrayed opposition to the project as well-heeled Potomac residents who don't want soccer traffic near their homes, and as a private farmer worried about his livelihood while farming county-owned land that should be put to public use.

Take a look--and post a comment to ask them yourself why they didn't report the true source of the controversy.
