On ABC's This Week, The Powerhouse Roundtable were shocked by the revelations gained after a bevy of emails and texts were released by Dominion Voting Systems from Fox News executives and employees.

"It's shocking, Martha, but once again maybe not surprising, the story of the Trump presidency, but really significant," Susan Glasser said. "I think that these were almost smoking-gun-type emails."

"This is in some ways the most serious media scandal, I think, of recent memory," Glasser continued. "Because what it -- these emails document essentially is fraud, and its senior executives and hosts perpetrating a fraud on their own viewers that they knew not to be true."

Glasser said Fox News made the right call on Arizona but executives went into crisis-mode.

ABC News Deputy Political Director Averi Harper joined in.

"When you look at what these court documents lay out, it is quite an eye-opener because this is just another indication that there was an entire ecosystem that was bolstering the big lie," she said. "And so, yes, it's not a surprise to see that some of these hosts were trafficking in conspiracy. But it is remarkable to see that curtain pulled back."

It is truly remarkable to see the lying liars exposed.

Kurtz did mention UFO's, Biden's age, and Don Lemon:
