(Newser) – Most New Yorkers were probably at home watching the Oscars, but those out and about might have noticed a hiccup in the MTA last night. Trains started skipping Grand Central Station last night, and the Times Square Shuttle was shut down over a bomb scare, DNAinfo reports. At 9:40, a spokesman confirmed that services were down for "an NYPD investigation" but wouldn't say more; at 10:15, another confirmed it had been a bomb scare of some kind.

While the media largely missed the incident, reports of it did light up Twitter. "I literally can't believe no news outlet is covering this bomb threat at grand central #nyc," one user tweeted.

We have become so celebrity-obsessed, that self-preservation itself is numbed. Cerebral paralysis! May-blossom senility! Marvelous!

American media couldn't put the blame on Muslims is probably why they didn't cover it.
