Josh Marshall floats an interesting idea today for countering Sinclair Broadcasting's TV campaign against John Kerry down the homestretch.

"I understand that George Soros is a rather wealthy man. Perhaps he should announce that he is interested in buying 90 minutes of prime time air time on Sinclair Broadcasting to show either 'Fahrenheit 9/11' or, even more appropriately, 'Going Upriver', the new movie out about John Kerry during the Vietnam era.

"If Sinclair won't sell the time, they're exposed for what they already clearly are. If the FEC won't allow it, on the premise that it amounts to a de facto campaign contribution to the Democrats or the Kerry campaign, then the folly of our current campaign laws is exposed."
