No... it's just that it was REALLY big news 6 weeks ago and you just brought it up. Don't be so paranoid.

Fake documentaries used to be called fiction way back when I watched entertainment.

I think 'fake' covers the 'fiction' part quite nicely and it is set in the style of an ACTUAL documentary, so my description seems apt. What troubles me more about 'entertainment' is not that fake documentaries exist -- they're quite obvious -- it's that too many people think that regular fiction is real. See "The Da Vinci Code" etc.
