Because it allows them to continue to focus on personalities rather than facts. Portraying PZ and Dawkins as uninvited agitators keeps folks from actually evaluating the merits of what PZ is saying. Note that the Premise Media press release the other day plumbs out a 3 year old PT quote from PZ which plays to the prejudices of the target audience.
