The Matrix

It's a tale as mind-bending as the matrix itself. For years, the media had championed the case of a middle-aged Black woman, Sophia Stewart, who claimed her registered manuscript is the basis for the blockbuster sci-fi film franchise. After a report floated that Stewart had won and been awarded $2.5 billion, which turned out to be false, the facts (or lack thereof) surfaced and Stewart's case started to seem more like a conspiracy theory aimed at big media.
