LASERS are line of sight and uni-directional, as they travel through space there is a high chance they would terminate on an object that didn't have sufficient gravity to bend space/time and hence bend the beam around the object.
Radio waves are Omni-directional and can propagate around an object in the same way waves in the sea propagate around a boat.
