I've seen a lot stories today related to this one that seem to indicate that CPR is a lot less effective than most believe. I don't think it is cut and dried that CPR would have done the woman any good.

No, it's not clear if CPR would have helped and it's true CPR isn't 100% effective. But it's probably a bit more effective than doing absolutely nothing.
