It's not a conspiracy theory, I myself don't believe in conspiracy theories, but I know a lot about "intelligence agencies" since I know people who once were in "KGB" most of them are in their 70s right now. "Intelligence agencies" have always had their saying in the media, especially in the movies and "news tv." Controlling the narrative is not a new thing, it depends which agenda the "state" has. Back in the "cald war" it was common for the CIA=Hollywood to print movies with narratives such as: Russians bad, Communism=genocide, Russians are scary etc. You know, there's thing called "soft power" you should read about.
