Did Michelle Obama’s speech soften a hardened Fox News reporter?

Tacoma City Councilwoman Marilyn Strickland, one of the Pierce County Democratic delegates in Denver, is enjoying the people-watching the event affords — including keeping an eye on the Fox News platform that happens to be situated in front of the Washington state delegation.

The reporters were all business early in the day on Monday, Strickland said.

“By the time Michelle Obama gave her speech, one of them smiled and warmed up to the whole thing,” Strickland said.

Strickland didn’t want to read too much into it.

But she couldn’t help but note “Her expression and body language changed.”

Remember Fox, there’s no cheering in the press box.
