For more useful information about the topic of desensitization in children caused by media, I have some recommended websites, which you will find useful in your findings about the topic.

I.     http://www.joannecantor.com/montrealpap_fin.htm

          The first websites you will find on the subject „The Psychological Effects of Media Violence on Children and Adolescents“ written by a doctor Joanne Cantor is about the effects media violence devote to children and teenagers when exposed to large amount of media violence, such as television or videogames.

II.     http://aappolicy.aappublications.org/cgi/content/full/pediatrics;108/5/1222

          Another very well researched website is written by the Committee on Public Education posted by the American Academy of Pediatrics about the possible effects of media violence on children. This website gives very useful and needed improvements people but also the media industry can to do limit children in exposure to media violence.

III.     http://www.bookrags.com/research/desensitization-and-media-effects-eci-01/

          My third recommended website talks about the reality of desensitization and its media effects on society. This website describes in detail an example of studies about desensitization, for example in viewers who watch large amount of violent media versus regular viewers, who watch only small amount of media violence and its effects to either groups.

IV.     http://www.westseattleherald.com/articles/2007/04/24/interact/columnists/column02.txt

          My last but not least recommended website talks about the reasons why should we blame video games for desensitization in violence and how they affect us. The writer Kyra-lin Hom describes the effects of playing video games, such as the player not distinguishing what videogames really do to him/her or the player believing video games have no effect what so ever.
