#102DillerMay Buy Ask Jeeves
• • The conglomerate reportedly is near a $2-billion deal for the Internet search service.
• •
NEW YORK -- IAC/InterActiveCorp, an Internet conglomerate run by media mogul Barry Diller, is near a deal to buy Web-search service Ask Jeeves Inc., sources familiar with the matter said Sunday.
• •
The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the deal, said IAC would pay $2 billion in stock, a 40% premium to Ask Jeeves' market capitalization on Friday.
• •
Neither Ask Jeeves nor IAC were immediately available for comment.
• •
IAC has a variety of Internet businesses, including Home Shopping Network, Web directory Citysearch and online mortgage provider LendingTree. It also owns travel site Expedia.
• •
Ask Jeeves' website Ask.com, with its cartoon butler mascot Jeeves, became known during the Internet boom of the late 1990s for providing the answer to queries made in the form of a question.
• •
The reported price would value Ask Jeeves stock at about $33.90 a share, compared with a close of $24.24 on Friday on Nasdaq. That would be below the 52-week high of $44.66 that the stock hit in April and the $34.99 it closed at Oct. 27, when the company reported earnings that sparked worries about growth and pushed the stock down 24% in one day.
• •
Other media companies have also received rich valuations recently as they have become hot properties once again. New York Times Co., for instance, agreed to buy information portal About.com for $410 million, and Dow Jones & Co. paid $528 million for financial news website MarketWatch Inc.
• •
Ask Jeeves would be one in a stream of acquisitions for IAC, which this month said it would buy catalog and online retailer Cornerstone Brands Inc. for $720 million to expand across multiple retail outlets.
• •
It would put IAC more directly in competition with larger search sites run by Google Inc., Yahoo Inc. and Microsoft Corp.

ByLines: Editors Note
• • Barry Diller is an innovative television executive best known for organizing a fourth network at FOX Broadcasting to challenge the domination of American prime time television by ABC, CBS, and NBC. Starting out in the mail room of the William Morris Agency, Diller joined ABC's programming department in 1966 and was placed charge of negotiating broadcast rights to feature films from the major studios. Promoted to vice president in charge of feature films and program development in 1969, Diller inaugurated ABC's Movie of the Week, a regular series of 90-minute films made exclusively for television. Premiering on 23 September 1969, the program became the most popular movie series in television history and helped ABC achieve parity with NBC and CBS in the ratings.
• •
Made-for-television films (MFTs) had appeared intermittently on prime time since 1965, when NBC contracted with MCA for more than thirty World Premiere movies to be delivered over a several year period. But it was Diller who devised the formula that enabled MFTs to outstrip the ratings power of theatrical movies. Abandoning conventional narratives such as westerns and crime melodramas, Diller ordered up social problem films that explored current issues such as homosexuality (That Certain Summer, 1972), the Vietnam War (The Ballad of Andy Crocker, 1969), and drugs (Go Ask Alice, 1973). Capable of being quickly produced at a cost of around $350,000 each, docudramas as they were called, probed current newspaper headlines and American popular culture for gripping topics targeted at young urban and adult audiences. By 1972, MFTs had become an established network programming practice.
