Well its an amazingly successful way to keep the public ignorant; make 'aliens' into a cute, mockable media baby that everyone recognizes as sci-fi fun, and make a bunch of movies on it that integrate 50's-70's notions of 'martians' like 'Mars Attacks' so that the people associate anything that looks like a Grey with goofy fun and paranoia. I mean, aliens couldn't look anything like humans right, they would be really weird-- they wouldn't have two eyes, a mouth, two arms, etc. Thats what I get when I bring the subject up. It seems like no one thinks about the idea that they could have seeded our planet or had some hand in our evolution, or that whole sections of the galaxy could have similarly shaped beings because of a mass seeding or similar conditions on the planet.
Movies have worked really well so far.
Makes me hope they didn't do the same for The Matrix!
