Keeping up with all of the infighting between MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Fox News’ Glenn Beck can be tiring, if not altogether confusing, as the two politically-minded hosts are often tossing barbs at each other while on the air.

A new disagreement over global warming is stirring up buzz following Maddow’s calling out of Beck during her show this week. To break it down, Maddow recently claimed Beck denied global warming because of D.C.’s massing snowstorm. Beck then shot back on his show accusing Maddow of editing his actual comments.

So Maddow tried clearing the air Tuesday night ‘The Rachel Maddow Show.’ “What [Beck's] accusing me of is cutting out part of his quote. But, did you notice what he just did,” she said before showing a clip of Beck’s video rant that has a noticeable edit of Maddow’s own comments.

As if to fuel the flames even more, Maddow played further examples of Beck’s joking about global warming. “Al Gore is full of crap,” one Beck clip blared before he called the former vice president’s work a “failure.”

And, while Beck and his listeners might loathe the very mention of Maddow’s name — as Beck jokingly proved by blacking out her eyes while playing a clip — the ladies of Smith College in Massachusetts are gah-gah over the idea of Maddow speaking at their upcoming graduation ceremony.
