Media coverage of FAA data around runway near misses is wall to wall, but UAP near misses in the air aren’t considered in the same arena of concern?

It’s not surprising to me at all that The New York Times would put out a piece investigating aviation safety and the story would penetrate every echelon of our news media, however when credible individuals highlight the same problem with near miss incidents and UAPs it’s barely acknowledged.

The NY Times report highlights FAA data that shows near-miss accidents (where planes nearly hit each other) have increased nearly 25% in the last decade, with about 300 such accidents in the most recent 12-month period for which reports are available. How many incidents have been reported between the military/commercial/private airliners and UAPs in the same period? Why is the public not more concerned from a purely safety oriented discussion about this topic? In a lot of cases we’re talking about the potential for mid air collision over populated areas. Why is disclosure not being pressed more from this safety angle?

“The U.S. aviation system is the safest in the world, but one close call is one too many. The FAA and the aviation community are pursuing a goal of zero serious close calls, a commitment from the Safety Summit in March. The same approach virtually eliminated the risk of fatalities aboard U.S. commercial airlines,” the FAA said.
