This closeted media billionaire who cheats on his wife with young men on a daily basis has tried to put one over on the people of the world for years and has been involved in all kinds of shady activities that made him his billions.
Now that the cranky old man has his money, he is doing his best to make sure no one else can get any and is bad mouthing crypto and people buying meme stocks.

In 2006 Barry Diller and IAC bought College Humor for $20m.
One of College Humor’s side projects, which came with the sale, was Vimeo.
This week Vimeo spun out and went public.
It’s currently worth $8 billion.
Now THAT is a good acquisition.

“I watch some of the people that you have on and they talk about it – $40,000, $12,000, whatever – I think ‘this is nutso talk,’” Diller said CNBC’s “Squawk Box” after originally indicating he didn’t want to talk about the crypto space.
