The Barry Diller Content Farm Song

At this point, what’s left to say? The recent news, via Ad Age, that Barry Diller majority-owned IAC has joined the content farm fray with something called The Writers Network is just one more reason for Southern California scribes to wave the tattered, bed sheet white flag.

And so, we offer up this sing-a-long lament, free of the usual $10-to-$25-per-item charge. All together now:

Old McDiller has a farm
Ee-i, ee-i, ouch!

And on this farm he has some freelancers
Ee-i, ee-i, ouch!

With a tap-tap here and a tap-tap there
Here a tap, there a tap, everywhere a tap-tap!

Old McDiller has a farm
And oddly, a Daily Beast too!
