Did CNN’s Chris Cuomo Just Swipe at Joe Scarborough With This Tweet?

Cuomo-ScarboroughNews junkies might be aware by now that CNN’s Chris Cuomo and MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough have been touching gloves lately over the quality of each others journalism. As he responded to online commentators this morning, Cuomo referred to Scarborough with a tweet that might have been a passive-aggressive slight on his fellow morning show host.

Scarborough had Rep. Tom Cole on for today’s Morning Joe, and he intensely grilled the representative on due process and the terror watch list with regard to gun control:

After the segment, a viewer tweeted at Cuomo and asked that he put his political guests to the fire with equal intensity. Cuomo defended his interview approach, implying that Scarborough is more of an ex-politician — the ultimate dirty word to many — than a journalist.

What say you? A subtle dig, or a well thought-out response?
