Does it - Who is to say whether television has a positively direct effect or a positive correlation - However, the majority of the people who have researched this topic have discovered that violence on television is indeed one of the prime factors contributing to the increase in violent and aggressive behavior among the youth in society. That is to say "there has been a growth of strong evidence to suggest that television violence does play an important and contributory part in the learning of aggression." In other words, violence in the media helps promote and encourage children and adolescents to freely express their abusive behavior.

Furthermore, I will emphasize if there are any differences in aggressive behavior between the genders. "
