Fox News flat-out lying about new nuclear weapons treaty with Russia

I know Fox News has a certain conservative, "progressives/liberals are the anti-christ" narrative that they're trying to push.  And most of the time, they seem to be content to mostly just distort or dismiss the facts that don't suit their ideology.  It's a pretty obvious bias, but now it appears that they've moved on to just flat-out lying about what President Obama is doing while simultaneously propagating some false, god-like fantasy existence of Ronald Reagan.  Seriously, how do they get away with this shit?  If, as a doctor, I were to lie about the effectiveness, side effects, or risks of a particular treatment, I would be sued in no time.  So how is it that Fox News continues to do crap like this without any consequences?

I try not to go too heavy on posting stuff from The Daily Show or The Colbert Report.  They're not news organizations, and I acknowledge that they shouldn't be used as a source of actual news.  However, I don't see many other people out there calling out Fox News on their complete and utter bullshit.  The clip below is from Thursday, April 8.  Enjoy.
