Does TV news coverage feed the riotous violence?

For the past week, we've all been treated to video coverage on TV of the riots in the Middle East, and for most of the past year we were all treated to footage of "Occupy" riots and violence

So here's my question- to what degree is the violence triggered or fed by the fact that it's on TV? In other words, if there wasn't TV coverage, would these mobs still act violently? It seems to me, that if there were not TV cameras there, the mobs would be smaller and less violent.
