Has the MSM Reported This?

I recall hearing last week on some news broadcast that opium production is increasing in Afghanistan, becoming a bigger problem since we liberated the country from the Taliban. Contrast this, from today's UN press briefing:
Afghan farmers are growing fewer opium poppies this year than they did in 2004, according to a survey released yesterday by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). This is expected to result in a drop in the country’s opium output for the first time since 2001.
