It's simply due to the camera not having a long enough exposure pick up the faint light from stars. That and also the resolution and compression of the video you see on NASA isn't that great. And on the day side, you have the Earth and a bright white space station reflecting sunlight into the camera and I don't know if video cameras can have long enough exposures to pick up stars anyway. But when on the night side, when they switch to the infrared mode, you can see some of the stars out there.
It has nothing to do with filters or hiding anything, it's simply due to the limitations of cameras. If you have a digital camera, try going out on a clear night and see how long of an exposure is needed to get stars to appear. You'll need a tripod or something steady to mount your camera on for sure.
