In addition to what Peter has said, have you tried running "crontab -e"
as root?  Perhaps its a personal crontab (/var/spool/cron/crontabs/$USER)

Fetchmail doesn't need to be run from cron anyway, it has a daemon mode
where it'll fork into the background and poll the upstream mail
server(s) at the interval you specify.
