Chris Cuomo is infamous for allowing his big mouth to overload his tiny circuits, and that’s exactly what happened Friday when he took to the Twitter machine in an attempt to pull yet another fast one.

Cuomo, host of CNN’s “Prime Time” program, linked to the Miami Herald’s latest hit piece on Gov.

The piece also included references to thousands of emails Jones also leaked to the Herald, none of which proved her allegations about being told to manipulate data. In fact, the only “proof” made clear by the piece was the fact that the Miami Herald desperately needs Rebekah Jones as much as
