Stern, from my understanding, was broadcasting such language on the
public airwaves.  Do you have an example of a company being prosecuted
for distributing CDs, or providing access over the internet which
contains such content, to minors?  I have to admit that I wasn't very
successful finding examples of website owners being prosecuted for
distributing pornogrophy.  I'm guessing I wasn't looking in the right
places or perhaps they just tend to be threatened since I know there
have been changes in that industry (click-through age statements and
whatnot) over the past couple years.
