Now lots of popular TV dramas are criticized of seriously distorting history but some argued that watching TV dramas is kind of relaxing and there exists a form of art and literature that is mainly composed of fiction, supplemented by historical facts.

Do you think historical TV dramas should necessarily be historical accurate?

TV is mostly entertainment.
a historical drama is just that: a DRAMA
even those based on FACT have many fictional parts to them, because no-one can accurately say exactly what was said or done at a point in history, particularly any incident that happened prior to modern recording methods.
equally no-one can accurately say WHY someone did something.
It is all interpretation of events.
SO
all historical dramas on TV have a large fictional part

It's a drama, not a documentary. Drama's are meant to entertain, not necessarily educate so, no I don't think they need to be historically accurate.

West uses distorted historical facts to manipulate their people to become more stupid so that they can be politically controlled to allow for their exploitation by their very own elites.

It looks like Western elites now control China's media as well.
