"Well, certainly, we should have great respect for Governor McGreevey and the very dignified, and courageous and character-filled way in which he dealt with this," Jacques, executive director of the Human Rights Campaign, said on the ABC News program. What Koppel didn't know was that Jacques had good reason to approve of McGreevey's words: HRC crafted McGreevey's hallmark line — "I am a gay American" — in the early 1990s, and had advised the governor to use it in his speech earlier that day. Steven Fisher, communications director for HRC, said Jacques didn't disclose the ties between the nation's largest gay rights group and McGreevey because "Nightline" producers didn't ask. But a "Nightline" spokesperson said Jacques should have been more candid. "We honestly didn't know [that McGreevey consulted with HRC] and were quite surprised when we found out," said Emily Lenzner, a spokesperson for "Nightline." "We would have certainly, at the very least, offered full disclosure [to viewers] if we had known they were providing guidance to McGreevey and his staff," Lenzner said. Fisher also praised McGreevey's "coming out" speech in a number of media interviews that never indicated HRC consulted on the wording beforehand. THE OMISSION REFLECTS POORLY ON both "Nightline" and HRC, but mostly on the news organization, according to Kelly McBride, an ethics faculty member at the (rj ACTION! INFO Human Rights Campaign 1640 Rhode Island Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20036 202-628-4160 www.hrc.org -Nightline' ABC News 7 W. 66th St. New York, NY 10023 212-456-7777 www.abcnews.go.com/sections/Nightline Cheryl Jaques, director of the Human Rights Campaign, appeared on 'Nightline' Aug. 12 to praise New Jersey Gov. James McGreevey's resignation announcement. Jacques did not disclose that the organization advised McGreevey on his speech. Poynter Institute, a journalism teaching institute based in Tampa, Fla. "I think 'Nightline' had an obligation to ferret out that information [about HRC advising McGreevey] — that's part of being a good journalist," McBride said. Journalists should not only tell viewers what sources say, but why they say it and whether any hidden motives influence their statements, McBride said. Lenzner said Jacques had appeared on "Nightline" in the past, and the show's producers expected her and HRC to be up front about the consultation the group provided earlier in the day Sources have no obligation to voluntarily disclose any connections they may have to a news story, but someone who deals with the media regularly "certainly understands the nature of conflicts of interests, and it might occur to that person that this information would be relevant to the story," McBride said. Jacques' decision to praise McGreevey's wording without disclosing HRC's role in providing that wording was "deceptive" and "disingenuous," McBride said. "I think they suffer the image of being political spinmeisters," McBride said. "Once [viewers] find out, you say, 'Wait a second, this is suspicious. These are not two individual groups going about their business, they're working together.'" JACQUES AND OTHER HRC OFFICIALS didn't disclose their ties to McGreevey because the consultation they provided — equipping him with language to talk about gay issues and coming out - was the same service they have given to lawmakers for years, Fisher said. "No one thought to talk about it because it's part of the work we do," Fisher said. HRC coined the "I am a gay American line in the early 1990s after testing it in focus groups as a way to convey unity as opposed to "otherness," Fisher said.
