There's a difference between being honest and being mean, and some critics either don't see the dividing line or are too happy to be snarky to actually care. Look at the writings of Alexis Soloski for a critics who is truly mean and downright petty, whereas Helen Shaw is fairly good at staying on the honest but not vicious side of the line (though she definitely gets close). I haven't seen Green get mean in the way that, say, Isherwood did, but I have noticed a tendency for him to get into a space of lecturing and/or pathologizing BIPOC writers (which has gotten worse at the Times, which really does seem to bring out the bad in their critics).
