Fox’s Maria Bartiromo tricked by animal rights activist posing as CEO of Smithfield Meat Company

If you suspected Maria Bartiromo would be easy to fool, those assumptions were confirmed on Wednesday morning when the Fox Business presenter spent more than six minutes interviewing an animal rights activist she believed to be the CEO of Smithfield Foods, who describes itself as “The world’s largest pork processor and producer.”

According to Direct action everywhere, activist Matt Johnson was able to be listed on the Bartiromo show as the new CEO and Chairman of Smithfield Foods, Dennis Organ. During the interview, he warned viewers that factory farms like the ones Smithfield operates could create the next pandemic, without arousing suspicion from Bartiromo, who simply pushed the segment.

Bartiromo began by introducing Johnson as Dennis Organ and asking him about the company’s South Dakota processing plant, which became the nation’s worst COVID-19 cluster at the start of the pandemic. For the first few moments, he played fairly straightforward, calling the coronavirus “devastating” to his industry and acknowledging the “heroic” efforts of the workers at the plant – some of whom died from COVID.
