What is the difference between spokesperson and mouthpieceMost of the time we hearing these two words in news, mostly it is used politically. Some say he/she is the mouthpiece of the political party/group/organisation. Sometime we say the spokesperson of so and so.
What actually the differences in these two words? Are these two words are having same meaning?
If I say he/she is the mouthpiece does it mean that the person whom we are indicating is a hardcore member of that group/organisation/political party who blindly support them?
And the spokesperson is the person who talks on behalf of a group/organisation/political party only what he/she has been asked to say/talk?
Knowledgeable members can guide us with their important views.
