Another random rule from the Associated Press

Published April 4, 2016

The Associated Press — the organization that thinks it makes perfect sense for someone to thank “…my parents, the Dali Lama and God…” and that airplane can fly “more than” a city, has now decreed that it will lower-case the “I” in Internet. Because… just because. To make it clear that it could be any of the internets? Who knows? But it’s gonna look odd to write, “You can find the information on the internet” because having an article — the — before the lower-cased word is just weird.

By this logic, shouldn’t we also lower-case “congress” when referring to the U.S. Congress? I mean the u.s. congress?
