Same person who owns The Times also owns The Sun and generally has the same journalists writing for both but under different names to make it seem as though they are seperate entites.

Come gather round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
Youll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin
Then you better start swimmin
Or youll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin
(~ Bob Dylan, The Times They are a-changing)
