As already stated, a myth is

As already stated, a myth is a metaphorical story. I think what is being discussed here qualifies as neither. It is not a story, but rather a report of events, which you happen to want to challenge the accuracy, or at least the implications of. A report of events is something that is to be interpreted literally, therefore the metaphorical quality that would qualify it as myth is missing.
