Go to: University of Valencia Spain honors Richard Dawkins with Doctor Honoris Causa

I was there (in fact I recorded the third video, I hope you'll excuse my silly funny-hat joke :P), it was very exciting to see Richard in person. I'm also proud of being part of the University of Valencia. That Honorary Doctorate was very well deserved, Congratulations!

Go to: Richard Dawkins says Pope is 'stupid'

Uh, I'm not sure anymore, but in the website of the University of Valencia the wording is "malintencionat." But anyway you're right when you say that "corto" would be better translated as "dim" rather than wicked. So yes, if you saw corto in some of the articles it was the journalist's fault.
Edit: Here's the link to the article in the website of the university, right in the middle of the third paragraph is the phrase.

The wording in the Spanish press is "es estupido, o ignorante o malintencionado" in Spanish and “o és estúpid o és ignorant o malintencionat” in Valencian (which is a variety of Catalan). "Malintencionat" and "malintencionado" are equivalent terms, and would be translated into the english language as "wicked" rather than into "dim".
