Abstract:

Though the Internet has been envisioned as a frontier for free speech, attempts to regulate this channel of communication not only exist, but are increasing around the world. While not many would dispute that the Internet has had at least some impact on society in general, empirical evidence would contribute to understanding the nature and extent of this impact and could lend support to the competing claims that this impact is positive or negative.
Given its potential for both good and bad, the Internet has proven to be a volatile subject for policy makers. Initial research indicates that, in the United States, Congressional discussions about possible Internet regulations have been fairly bipartisan. While much has been written about U.S. party politics, Congressional voting patterns, divided vs. united governments, and party polarization B of which bipartisanship is a part B many of the scholarly discussions on the general concept of bipartisanship focus on foreign policymaking.
