This subject has been swept under the radar

The subject is aliens from outer space.  Here is the quote:

“…Take the founder of Bigelow Aerospace for example, who is one of many who has shared his knowledge about the fact that we are not alone, and that we are being visited.

For so long, this subject has been swept under the radar by so many people, and all of a sudden we’ve had this burst of information that’s made it clear to most that something is going on here…”

This is the source:

This is a nice mashup of “swept under the rug” (to ignore or deny something in the media that is embarrassing) and “under the radar” (not being noticed or addressed).  Both idioms contain the word “under” and both describe something hidden.  A big thanks to the comedian Frank King for sending this one, and another thank you to his sister for spotting this malaphor!
