Mistaking likeable for bad

At npr.org, so . . . .

I understand that criticism of anything remotely accessible, plus a system that largely ignored music outside the academy, and a rotten and unfair funding structure made many composers feel that they had to write music in a style that was not truly theirs.

Missy understands “that criticism of anything remotely accessible”? I wish she’d explain it, then. It hasn’t struck me as at all more intelligent than equating accessible with bad.
