Nope. It's there by default in some form or another.
By default, it usually looks like this ->
127.0.0.1 installname localhost.localdomain localhost
::1 localhost6.localdomain6 localhost6
If you don't have anything like this in your /etc/hosts, you either
need to find a mirror and begin yelling at responsible parties, or
stalk whomever else has root on this particular machine.
During times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
