(Newser) – Glenn Beck feels Sarah Palin's pain about new next-door neighbor/biographer Joe McGinniss, and he's making use of some of his not inconsiderable clout to make him go away. Beck thinks McGinniss' move is creepy, and tantamount to stalking—she calls it "a nightmare"—the better to work on his unauthorized book. Beck wants Random House to call McGinniss off, Mediaite reports. "If you don’t get control of your authors I will never mention a Random House book ever again," he said yesterday on his show.

"And I don’t know if you’ve noticed this," he added, to twist the knife a bit, "but I tend to sell books, not just my books, but books from other publishers." Click here for Palin's response to McGinniss' arrival.
