Rep.-elect Allen West calls for Censoring Press...oh, he meant Censure? Really?

Rep.-elect Allen West, who has made some of the most idiotic comments of any GOP winner in history, just made this major slip many are now pretty angry about:

Of course, what you just heard is really something you actually...misheard.

Huffington Post: Allen West, the Tea Party-backed congressman-elect who on Tuesday fielded heavy criticism for apparently suggesting that media outlets should be censored for running stories about WikiLeaks' disseminated information, responded Wednesday by claiming that he had actually called for "censure," and that people had misheard his original statement.
"The confusion comes with the word censor...when I meant censure- in context that the media should be harshly criticized for printing the damaging documents Assange has released which so clearly puts our soldiers and country at risk."
