W Actress/anchorwoman In Near-fatal Attack

An American TV anchorwoman who appears in OLIVER STONE's new biopic W is in a critical condition after she was beaten and stabbed at her Arkansas home.
Reporter Anne Pressly was found unconscious in bed on Monday (20Oct08), bleeding from head and body wounds, according to police officials.
Pressly was discovered by her mother who went to the home after Pressly failed to answer her daily wake-up call.
The 26-year-old acts as general assignment reporter at the station, and anchors the channel's Daybreak slot on ABC's Arkansas affiliate, KATV.
She also plays a conservative broadcaster who supports Bush's Iraq campaign in Stone's forthcoming movie, which stars Josh Brolin as the Republican President.
She is currently receiving treatment at a local hospital.
Police spokeswoman Cassandra Davis has confirmed officials are investigating whether Pressly was deliberately targeted.
Davis tells the New York Post, "It is possible that it is something other than robbery... she was a public figure... on the news, in the media."
