What are they actually saying?

Clearly it's the latter:

2 Congressional Democrats in Support of Porn-Free Internet Alternative:

Despite resistance from public interest groups and free-speech advocates, two Congressional democrats have expressed their support for a proposal that would create a free Internet alternative that has zero adult content.
Let's put aside for a moment any arguments related to freedom of speech or the propriety of pornography. Does "Internet alternative" make sense to anyone else? Is this some independent network, unconnected to the Internet? Is it some new backbone system? Is it just going to be an ISP with content filters? Or is this just incoherent nonsense spewing from the mouths of congressmen?
