Bloomberg Video

Nov.29 -- Axel Springer SE Chief Executive Officer Mathias Doepfner has ventured further online than most publishing executives, transforming the company from the owner of newspapers including Bild, Germany’s biggest daily, and Welt into a digital media company that now generates about 85 percent of its ad revenue online. The company controls Business Insider and researcher eMarketer Inc., and invested in a joint venture for a European version of Politico. Doepfner discusses a range of topics with Bloomberg's Matt Miller in Berlin from coverage of the U.S. election to regulation of social networks like Facebook.
