I don't think the media could let a story as gigantic (it is basically the biggest news story in human history) as an alien invasion go away.

I don't think the government would even be within its rights to disallow reporting on this. I mean seriously?

And how about some rationale on WHY the government would prevent journalists from reporting on this?

And how about "leaks" and slippages and what not. I mean a kid living next door to the Kent farm could post an Instagram and that would be it.

How on earth can this story stay hidden?
