The disgraced former head of Massport has been hired as the deputy editorial page editor of the Boston Herald. Virginia Buckingham was hired on Monday in what she hopes will be a new career as a writer. There has been a lot of back and forth about the Buckingham hire in media circles, like media critics Dan Kennedy of the Boston Phoenix and Boston Globe media critic Mark Jurkowitz. Kennedy stated in his Media Log entry Monday that people should "give Buckingham a chance." Others have been more skeptical.
