IAC/InterActiveCorp Chairman Barry Diller shot back Tuesday at Liberty Media Corp. Chief Executive John Malone, saying it was "preposterous" that Malone's lawyers had filed court papers to remove him from the board in an effort to gain control of the company. "Liberty does not control IAC," IAC said in a statement. New York-based IAC owns such brands as Ask.com, Match.com, Evite, Citysearch, Ticketmaster and LendingTree.
