Popularity and bad taste

Anything popular is dismissed as being populist - which is sneering shorthand for being of the lowest possible taste

"The BBC's cultural Marxism will trigger an American-style backlash"

I must say, although I do not agree with anything this guy said in the article, this one line kinda gets to me.
Are we snobs? We as in the ones with good tastes or more so "unique tastes" in art/music/movies etc.
Are we condescending towards others who feed off of the music/art that is just given to them?
