ArkTimes ^ | Monday, Oct 20, 2008

Anne Pressley, 26, a news reporter for KATV, was assaulted in her home on Club Road in the Country Club neighborhood last night and suffered serious wounds.

A police spokesman said Pressley was "beaten and stabbed" and that her injuries were "life-threatening." The police do not have a suspect. Pressley has a small role in the current movie, "W," Oliver Stone's portrayal of George W. Bush. She played commentator Ann Coulter in the movie, much of it filmed in Shreveport.

Does anybody bother to question why a “news reporter” is taking on Hollywood roles, especially as (what I’m sure is) a gross caricature of a right-wing pundit?

That said, I hope she gets well soon.

Cease with the jokes please! Her injuries are life threatening. As such, jokes are in very poor taste, and that is putting it mildly.

I guess we are to assume that the reason for the attack was her movie role and, by implication, it was some right wing nut who committed the crime.

The article did note that her purse was missing so it may have been intended simply as a robbery.

I don't know the circumstances here and not to blame the victim but the only way to learn from these incidents is to respectfully look at the mistakes so as not to repeat them

That said I have to wonder out loud if she was armed or if she took home security serious enough.

There is no evidence that this had anything to do with her film role or politics, yet the story seems to give that implication.

The most likely cause is domestic problems (a boyfriend) or a robbery. I didn’t see anything in the story about a robbery.

To try and make political hay out of this is pitiful. The woman’s been stabbed, and the reporter wants to slip in politics?

You make a snide quip about a woman with life threatening injuries in Post #4(w/o any knowledge of it being true), and YOU call ME a jerk?

Your posts speak volumes about your character, or more appropriately, your lack thereof.

A horrible crime. Praying for her. I hope they catch the guy and string him up. I also hope that she recovers fully, sounds like she tried having dogs as protection. Coulter also would have had guns, if this poor lady did not.

“Police have been talking with Pressly’s friends and neighbors but believe the attack may have been part of a robbery, as her mother reported her purse was missing.”

Agreed. Could be a random robbery. I don't know if her role in the movie had anything to do with this attack but I'm sure many of those involved with it were not people any of us would invite to our homes.

Regarding why a news reporter is taking on Hollywood roles—this was an extremely low budget, hastily slapped together film. Pressley was cheap (no disrespect to her, but she probably took a pittance compared to what a regular actress would cost) and local. Huge savings for the tiny budget.

Prayers for a speedy recovery. I don't much care for the smearmovie she chose to associate herself with, yet I certainly wish her well.

Hope they find the culprit and put him under the jail!
