What does CSICOP want us to do?  Ask them to start censoring all
films for "unscientific magical thinking"? Repeat "UFOs are a
figment of our imagination" a 1000 times each morning?

I watch X-Files occasionally but it has not modified my views on
UFOs, cover-ups, whatever.  I just enjoy it as fiction.
