The function of this ministry (deparment of state), headed by Goebbels, was to form public opinion in Nazi Germany. Its functions extended to all the media, including the press, the radio and cinema. It also played a key role in censorship. However, it often also ordered the media to publish (or announce) news in specific ways. This ministry organized exhibitions of 'degenerate art, and took over responsibility for training journalists. It also monitored public opinion. I hope this answer helps. Joncey
