Nettwerk CEO and Lilith Co-Founder Terry McBride Challenges Critics Of 2010 Lilith Tour

On Tuesday, June 29, Nettwerk CEO and Lilith co-founder Terry McBride posted an open letter to critics of the 2010 Lilith Tour:

I have been amazed at the feeding frenzy of negativity by the media and bloggers around Lilith Fair. Such attacks are normally seen in the theatre of partisan politics that have poisoned western society.

What drives the passion to write negative and speculative commentary on what is a socially positive and giving festival? Why this desire to hurt and demean the efforts of thousands of people whom simply want to give back and make our society a better place?

It’s amazing to me that I did not see one of these outspoken critics at the opening show. How can one accurately report on, or even understand what Lilith is, without experiencing it? It would have been great to see the critics experiencing the passion from the people at Oxfam, Warchild, Reverb, Better World Books, Alter Eco, To-Go Ware and our amazing charity, Grameen America. Then seeing how the Sponsors such as J&J were adding so much fun and value to the experience of the Lilith Village. Funny enough, the main complaint in Calgary was long line-ups to get in. Well, the venue cut back on staff thinking no one would show up. I’m not sure where they got that idea? The critics in Calgary criticize Lilith for a situation they created, which is ironic to say the least.
