No, but as Bart pointed out, it attracted media attention. Of course, it was all over Fox, but there was also a blurb about it on my local evening news, which is the first I've seen.

Regarding contempt, I still don't know if the charge will stick. Yes, Issa claims to have the votes, but I wonder how many of those folks will drift away under political pressure. Before the final vote, we can be sure that somebody's going to ask the Representatives if they really want to send the Sargeant-at-Arms to physically arrest the Attorney General. I can see more than a few relenting.
