It's all just language control. They insist on using "conspiracy theory" because it shifts the argument away from the material aspects of a conspiracy and injects kneejerk doubt. Most people don't think critically. They think on rails that guide them to conclusions with the least resistance. Phrases like "conspiracy theory" put's them on the rail straight towards "this is what crazy people think".
