From today's Star Wars Annual #1, Emperor Palpatine addresses the citizens of the Empire, personally, on camera…
I'm going to say that he must have fired his PR managers, because he really doesn't have the face for forty foot high public address systems.
Still, I don't suppose anyone is going to tell him. He is the Emperor after all.
Put it this way, if he states that most Huttites are rapists, that Jedi should be banned from entering Imperial sectors until the senate can work out what is going on, warning against the likelihood of many more Death Stars, or that Tatooine has no-go areas that Stormtroopers fear for their lives to enter, I can't see anyone objecting to that, either.
And at least he has the courtesy to cover his hair up.
