‘W.’ Newscaster Anne Pressley Attacked

The National Enquirer reports that Arkansas television news anchorwoman Anne Pressley, who plays a role in Oliver Stone’s George W. Bush biopic, is in criticial condition after being attacked in what appears to be a home invasion.

Pressley was found battered and unconscious in her bed by police. Authorities were called by Pressley’s mother after her daughter failed to answer a phone call.

“(It) is possible that it is something other than robbery,” a police spokeswoman stated.

“Our detectives are talking with co-workers because she was a public figure, because she was on the news, in the media.”

Pressley plays a newscaster in Oliver Stone’s W. bio-pic, which chronicles the rise to the presidency of George W. Bush and his handling of 9/11 and the Iraqi War.
