We usually just say "Bad news travels fast." In Star Trek, they jokingly say that "Gossip is the only thing that travels faster than light without warp engines."

No, this is not a standard expression, and I have never heard it before. It is clear what it means, though. We normally say 'fast as lightning' or similar. But an original phrase like 'fast as a lie' can have more impact than a cliche like 'fast as lightning.'
