So Dish...

...essentially pulled the farm subsidy loophole.

For those who don't know, owners of large farms would legally subdivide their farms into small farms and collect government subsidies for each one. They'd use various friends, relatives, and employees as the titular "owners" of the land, but all the decisions and money would go to the "management company" that the real owners set up.

This goes back decades. I remember a 60 Minutes report on one guy who actually got a government grant to publish a pamphlet on how to do this.
