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.

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.
You KNOW we’re gonna hear that Bush was behind this.
Maybe it was a left wing nut who thought she was Ann Coulter.
>>Cease with the jokes please! Her injuries are life threatening. As such, jokes are in very poor taste, and that is putting it mildly.<<
Prayers for this lady.
The article did note that her purse was missing so it may have been intended simply as a robbery.
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?
An Obamanite who thought the actress was Ann Coulter..
I guess the well to do neighborhoods these people live in aren’t safe anymore
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.
And bubble-headed, too. Ask Don Henley.
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.
More ad hominem. A class act you are not.
I get it. Ric Flair in photo. He gets beaten up. Anne Pressly in photo, she gets beaten and stabbed. I guess fat boy on the left better keep an eye out!
Looks like the ONLY reason to see “W”
