Cable crusader is waging his latest battle for control of satellite radio company Sirius, upping his Liberty Media's stake in the company and trying to wrest control of more board seats, despite resistance from its CEO Mel Karmazin. Malone, who U.S. Vice President Al Gore once called "Darth Vader", has squared off against other formidable opponents including Viacom's Sumner Redstone over the years. In 2010, he unwound his 17-year partnership at InterActiveCorp with Barry Diller. The former partner of TCI Cable founder Bob Magness (d. 1996), he sold what was then the nation's largest cable company to AT&T in 1999 for $54 billion. Today his Liberty Media owns stakes Sprint Nextel, Live Nation, Barnes & Noble and pro baseball's Atlanta Braves. It also owns a stake in Discovery Communications, which was spun off from Liberty Media in 2005. Malone is also now the country's largest individual landowner with nearly 2.2 million acres in Maine, Maryland, New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming. He's given over $150 million over the years largely in support of education; in 2011, he gave $50 million to his alma mater Yale
