Propaganda was the dissemination of information, especially of a biased nature, for the purpose of promoting or injuring a political institution, cause or point of view. During the Galactic Civil War, the Galactic Empire of Palpatine made frequent use of propaganda to recruit new soldiers and snuff out any rebellious activities. The Ministry of Information, headed by Pollux Hax, was tasked with muzzling the press, while the Commission for the Preservation of the New Order issued propaganda posters. During Empire Day, as part of propaganda purposes for the Emperor and the state-run media of the Galactic Empire, Palpatine was altered to look as he did during the Clone Wars in a holo file depicting the Emperor's inauguration speech.
The First Order trained its stormtroopers by, among other things, teaching them propaganda that resulted in a skewed view of history if they paid attention to it. FN-2187 was one such stormtrooper who did not and thus while he had little knowledge of galactic politics, his tendency to value friendship led him to help those in the Resistance.
