Useful Idiot: A Loudmouth

A loudmouth is a person who spreads secrets and rumors. Most people don’t like them. I know you can’t tell them anything, but they could be useful, however in this series I will use the word use word like “pusher” “outreach” and “noise source.” Having a friend in one of your circles can act as one of these.

Let’s say you want to spread a rumor or story, whether it’s fake or not, you have two options. Option one is you spread it yourself. This requires a lot of time and can possibly ruin your reputation.

The other is you tell a loudmouth something. You need to make sure to say it in a convincing way. Don’t let them know why you’re telling them what you’re telling them. Then you wait. If the story is good enough it will spread on its own without any effort.
