Freedom of Speech: Interpret the Legalese here?

Several posts and other sites have talked about the McCain-Feingold Campaign Reform Act (available at http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi?dbname=107_cong_public_laws&docid=f:publ155.107)
as basically saying "Big media companies and some individual people can talk about candidates before elections, but no one else can".

I'm having a hard time parsing the legalese there to see what it REALLY says. Anyone out there have better Legal-Fu and an ability to show how it interprets?
