Fish oil supplements not beneficial for decreasing chances of heart disease?

I just saw on CNN this morning a cardiologist saying that fish oil supplements are basically useless, that only the actual food source provides the benefits of decreasing stroke and heart disease? Is this so?
I always understood that the omega-3 fatty acids are what provide these benefits, which are included in both the fish oils supplements and obviously the fish themselves….

    Actually, the cardiologist on CNN is wrong. Fish oil supplements do work, I know this to be true because my own cardiologist directed me to the studies that were done to support the use of fish oils.
