Does TV create violence?

Does TV create violence, really? Maybe guns create violence. Knives. Baseball bats. Hammers. Axes, shovels, saws? Rope? Dynamite? Sharp sticks, rocks? Maybe it's language causes violence because most killers spoke. Maybe it's books. Clothing? Day time night time wind rain snow trees birds frogs.
For lots of kids, even the bad guys on TV are nicer than the real life crazy people they live and go to school with.

"There's so much comedy on television. Does that cause comedy in the streets?"
