We give a new proof of the Lipschitz continuity with respect to $t$ of the pressure in a one dimensional porous medium flow. As is shown by the Barenblatt solution, this is the optimal $t$-regularity for the pressure. Our proof is based on the existence and properties of a certain selfsimilar solution.
