IMO, there is an entire cadre of NASA employed & contracted staff whose sole mission is to "vet" and, to any extent necessary, sanitize everything
that is, was, or will ever potentially be, made public.
Further, there is likely another group that does the same for everything that is simply shared internally and never intended for public consumption.
For other than the obvious reasons (hide the truths, if any), this procedure ensures that anything that might even in the slightest way be mistakenly
construed as an anomaly is removed. Why? So NASA then won't have to deal with it, extend precious resources on it, or be drawn into any controversy
that distracts them from their "scientific" pursuits.
How much info do they withhold? I don't think it's possible to guess - that's like asking, "...how much does the CIA know about "x"?"
Do they withhold pictures? My guess is that photography, both stills and video, because it is clearly the most visible of the remotely sensed media
they obtain, is the strongest recipient of the in-depth and quite thorough sanitizing operation.
The most laughable thing of all is that when they are queried by the media or the public they spit out a stock form letter stating that they have no
policy and no interest in anything having to do with ufo's. How ludicrous is that? The largest, most experienced, highest funded "aeronautics and
space" organization on our planet has "no interest" in what could be the most profound revelations having to do with space and aeronautical
phenomenon known to humanity. How reassuring...
