I wish I could have put it as simple as that
Don't be beguiled by simplicity. The editorial priorities of the News of the World were quite different to those of the Sun and those differences are absolutely crucial to the kind of impact the Sun on Sunday is likely to make in its target market.
On that point, "Gutter press" is simply a perjorative term for the market segment it occupied. It does not follow that two "gutter press" products made by the same company are essentially the same product.
