The titanic had a twin ship that had been wrecked and roughly patched, but couldn't really sail anymore; Insurance companies would not pay for that wreck, so they disguised it as the Titanic, that was still allowed to cross the atlantic, and sent it on purpose against an iceberg, counting on the many other ships around that part of the ocean to save all the passengers. Then something went wrong, the ship was sinking too fast, people could not be evacuated in time etc etc.
I have no source on this but I suppose it is all on the internet. Of course, like you say it could all have been fake, to spice up the newsreels of the old days. But you gotta put in it some sort of scam to make money out of it, then it makes more sense.

Titanic and Gigantic sank!
The insurance Theory is as good as the Federal Reserve theory.
My theory is more technical: the use of coal.
As Hinderburg was the last airship, Titanic was the T-Rex of coal ships, from then they used OIL!
OIL MUST WIN!
Might have also been one of the earlier cases of using Vicsims, actors, fake-survivors/witnesses, etc. ?
