Huffington Post editor-in-chief Arianna Huffington clashed with Axel Springer CEO Mathias Dopfner Thursday at the Monaco Media Forum.

Huffington and Dopfner — whose company owns Bild, the biggest newspaper in Europe — disagreed with one another over the future of the media business model. Dopfner argued in favor of paid content online, while Huffington maintained that consumer habits have changed and free, advertiser-supported content is the way of the future.
