The Price of Obscenity- why is homicide more cost effective?

Intriguing article from Rolling Stone: FCC Censorhip. Writer David Swanson explains that under the new fine system that Congress is approving for obscenity on the airwaves, Howard Stern could have gotten off easier and cheaper if he actually killed someone in a hit-and-run or poisoned the New York water supply. Needless to say, I don't advocate either of those as alternatives but someone's definitely wrong here and our government's priorities are obviously screwed up.
