TPG is Owned by BankRate???

Someone on the Amex forum mentioned the TPG was actually owned by BANKRATE INC. A quick internet searched revealed the following;

The USPTO has given the THE POINTS GUY trademark serial number of 85351809. The current federal status of this trademark filing is REGISTERED. The correspondent listed for THE POINTS GUY is Carl J. Spagnuolo of McHale & Slavin, P.A., 2855 PGA Boulevard, Palm Beach Gardens FL 33410-2910 . The THE POINTS GUY trademark is filed in the category of Computer & Software Products & Electrical & Scientific Products , Advertising, Business & Retail Services , Transportation & Storage Services . The description provided to the USPTO for THE POINTS GUY is Promoting the goods and services of others by providing a website featuring price-comparison information and discount information

I had always thought most bloggers were independent operators. So, is corporate ownership common in the blogging world? What other blogs are actually owned by corporations?
