Soros on campaign finance

OpinionJournal.com's Political Diary notes that in Washington yesterday Soros made some comments about campaign finance regulations:

Mr. Soros agreed that McCain-Feingold was imperfect legislation but argued that it had been needed to curb special-interest money in politics. "There will always be loopholes," he added. "People will be imaginative, so I think we have to keep working at it. I think we need a new McCain-Feingold."


I have two questions. It is nice to know that Soros acknowledges that people will find ways around the regulations just has he already has, but how exactly would campaign finance regulations stop him from creating loopholes? For example, Soros can surely buy whatever media outlets that he wants. Also, is Soros considered a special interest?
