Actually UFOs ave been filmed/videoed by newsmedia a number of
times. However, the videos have been generally ignored. Note:
the famous new Zealand Film was taken by newsmedia! How about
the famous "Concord UFO" of 20 years ago or more?

None of the newsmedia recorded film/video/photos was discussed
at the SSE panel.

I guess the problem is that there hasn't been an event where
independent newsmedia have multiply recorded (as well as
multiply witnessed) something as definitive as an "Independence
Day" type saucer (not necessarily as large as 15 miles in
diameter, of course. Thirty feet wuld be large enough, thank
you.)
