Litter by any other name

If a teenager drives by and tosses a used soda bottle in one driveway, he can be fined hundreds of dollars for littering.

If the Asheville Citizen-Times drives by and tosses a plastic bag filled with advertising circulars in thousands of driveways, why isn't the Citizen-Times fined for littering?
