Frequently Asked Questions
Or questions answers to things we thought you might want to know.
What is Inside Blip?
Inside Blip is a news and rumors television entertainment Web site owned by Quantum Global Media Inc. It was founded in August 2009 to become the flagship of the BlipNetwork, a family of sites that include science-fiction news site Airlock Alpha (founded in 1998) and horror entertainment news site Rabid Doll (founded in 2007).
What's the difference between news and a rumor?
News is something that has been released through official channels about a certain topic, while rumors are generally stories that are not confirmed through official channels. Although Inside Blip works hard to corroborate all rumor reports, please know that information contained in rumors are subject to change over time, or could even be incorrect.
Where are all the spoilers?
Beginning in January 2009, the BlipNetwork has moved away from providing script-specific spoilers in stories, for a number of reasons. The biggest reason is that the BlipNetwork's strong relationship with the networks and studios no longer requires a dependence on spoiler news as a way to differentiate it from other sites. At the same time, larger media organizations like magazines and TV shows with far more resources, dipped their hands into spoilers (many times calling them "scoops" instead of "spoilers"), and that's simply resources the BlipNetwork and its volunteer staff cannot compete with.
That doesn't mean there aren't tidbits of plotlines and such found in Inside Blip reporting. There is always a chance for moderate spoilers when talking about cast changes, show direction changes, or other stories that don't focus on just plotlines.
Who are the people behind the site?
Michael Hinman is the site coordinator and news editor of Inside Blip. He's the owner of the parent company that runs this site, Quantum Global Media Inc., and is probably best known for his more than 11 years of work on Airlock Alpha. He also has been known more recently as the creator of the word "Syfy," which is now owned by NBC Universal and is the name of its primary science-fiction cable channel. Hinman leads a team that includes Nick Chase as the chief technology officer, Shane Churchman as the creative director, and Bryant Griffin as the assistant news editor.
