Richard Dawkins would rather spend his time tweeting away than read a scientific journal article. In one of his recent tweets, he writes:
Mehdi Hasan admits to believing Muhamed flew to heaven on a winged horse. And New Statesman sees fit to print him as a serious journalist

He then goes on a tweet rant (a twrant?) about Hasan and his belief in winged horses and how this calls the judgment of the New Statesman into question.
Obviously, Dawkins has some issue with this journalist. Just what could it be?
Oh yeah, Mehdi Hasan was the first and only journalist to expose the hypocrisy of Dawkins:
And then led him to issuing an embarrassing call for help:
Dawkins Digs the Hole Even Deeper
That interview must have stung.
I think these latest attacks on Hasan, along with the insinuation that Hasan should not be writing for the New Statesman, show us just how vindictive and catty this Gnu atheist leader can be.
