>Why try to sell this to the public? What’s Fox News’ goal here? Manufacture outrage just to get viewers?

Fox News was literally created to feed off of American right-wing outrage, under the pretense of providing a "fair and balanced" alternative to the liberal media. They're also deeply in the tank for the Republican party and conservatives, and always have been.

So... yes. They're giving their viewers a vision of the world they believe exists, but that the rest of the media is hiding from them.
