Few people in the field of UFO research can agree to make the same conclusions on cases - how can you expect a larger body of people to agree on ANYTHING when UFO research is concerned?
Part of the UFO culture is sifting through the bunk to identify the quality stories. Hard work and dedicated investigation will always be required to attain as many facts as possible.
Media outlets are probably controlled, so they only want to report what they are told to report with. Why would they be concerned with the 'truth', as documented by a panel of 'experts'?
In many ways, your 'UFO clearinghouse' already exists. It's called 'The Internet' and websites like this one are an important resource to disseminate information to all and sundry.
Media outlets and individuals have the capability to search through the online information and sift the layers of bunk from the evidence. Whether or not they choose to do so will ultimately be an indictor of their persistence to find what they are looking for.

All I'm suggesting is to make it easier for them to find the information they're looking for, because in my experience, once people know the facts and the scope of the UFO field, there's more of a tendency they'll consider it seriously, and not as a joke. Much like myself, the joke is getting really old.
