Cultural criticism nowdays would probably just be any general opinion piece on society, its customs, politics, arts, etc. The most prominent modern intellectual to master this genre would be Jacques Barzun, whose style and focus descend from William Hazlitt, and perhaps earlier from Montaigne. Literary criticism is a much more academic practice not usually reserved for popular periodicals, or even for most literary magazines.
