Apples and Oranges

I know not to compare apples and oranges, but this is just for some perspective. What are the priorities of Federal regulators? Is it a bigger crime to allow companies to operate virtually unfettered by safety requirements or to allow one breast free for a second on national television? Here is your answer:

March 8, 2006: The federal government said Wednesday it had fined the company that owns the West Virginia mine where a dozen miners were killed in January more than $100,000 in new penalties.

They are part of 208 citations that the federal agency issued against Ashland, Ky.-based International Coal Group for problems at Sago in the calendar year prior to the Jan. 2 explosion

March 15, 2006 The U.S. Federal Communications Commission on Wednesday upheld its proposed $550,000 fine against 20 CBS television stations for a stunt involving pop singer Janet Jackson briefly exposing her breast during the 2004 Super Bowl football game halftime show.
