Earthquake Warning Missed

We all know that seismological activity happens in bunches and because of that I am curious as to why this article, entitled "Penguins Escape Huge Earthquake" got absolutely zero media attention. It would only seem logical that some seismological research facility got readings of the P-wave activity and could therefore have at least speculated about another massive quake hitting just a day later. Although, it is entirely possible that the horizontal waves coupled with the fact that everyone was getting ready for xmas on Friday could have delayed the discovery of this data. Why doesn't any media outlet give this story (or at least this lead) the time of day it deserves?
