See what journalists are missing when it comes to reporting on guns, as well as how to avoid mistakes that are regularly made when it comes to coverage on assault-style weapons, high capacity magazines and gun-show/online loopholes, among other stories.

Two journalism professors from Keene State College will dissect the issues during a panel discussion titled “Journalism on Target: Reporting on guns and gun issues with accuracy,” during the Making CONNections regional journalism conference at Southern Connecticut State University April 9.

The conversation will be held from 1:45 – 3 p.m. at the Adanti Student Center. For more information on the conference, or to register, please visit the conference website.
