Senate Candidates are Smart, Right? Wrong. Meet the MI GOP's Terri Lynn Land

A reporter asked Michigan's extreme GOP Senatorial candidate Terri Lynn Land to expound upon remarks made Wednesday regarding open Internet laws and the recent ruling on net neutrality. Her response, far from clarifying her position, answered the lingering question of why Land rarely makes remarks to the media. She is incredibly uninformed.

"I think the Internet should be free," Land said. "It is a great source of information. It's the opportunity for people to talk. I'm a Twitter fan. I'm on Twitter. And it's a great way to connect with people. So I think that's a very important part of this, and especially in emerging countries and growing communities it's a way to actually communicate and I think it's very important to have that available for everyone."

When the reporter asked her if that meant she supports a free national broadband push, or if she meant that she agreed with general net neutrality laws (against the current GOP position), she stammered:

Reporter: Right, net neutrality, which is about access to faster Internet, not free Internet.

Land: Right. I think that … I think it's important that the costs don't go up so people can't have access to the Internet, meaning that what he said, if it's faster than they're gonna charge more to the consumer."

Confusing as that answer may be, it appears that Terri Lynn Land has taken a strong campaign position against broadband Internet.
