Stennis forum to feature Mississippi journalists

Emily Wagster Pettus of the Associated Press, Bobby Harrison of the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal and Geoff Pender of The Clarion-Ledger -- aka The Capitol Gang -- will take a look back at the 2014 session of the Mississippi Legislature through the eyes of a journalist during the upcoming meeting of the Stennis Institute-Capitol Press Forum.

A panel discussion format will be used with the Stennis Institute's Phil Hardwick serving as moderator. The audience will also be invited to submit questions.
