Here is a handy guide to carry around about the rights of photographers. Any photographer, not just the media.

Obviously you can't read it here. The PDF: http://www.krages.com/ThePhotographersRigh...
From this website: http://www.krages.com/phoright.htm
(Mr. Krages deserves a big credit and thank you for having this available.)
As the flyer states, there are not very many legal restrictions on what can be photographed when in public view. Most attempts at restricting photography are done by lower-level security and law enforcement officials acting way beyond their authority. Note that neither the Patriot Act nor the Homeland Security Act have any provisions that restrict photography.

The Photographer’s Right is a downloadable guide that is loosely based on the Bust Card and the Know Your Rights pamphlet that used to be available on the ACLU website. It may be downloaded and printed out using Adobe Acrobat Reader. You may make copies and carry them your wallet, pocket, or camera bag to give you quick access to your rights and obligations concerning confrontations over photography. You may distribute the guide to others, provided that such distribution is not done for commercial gain and credit is given to the author.


There are other websites that discuss photographer's rights (just google) including the NPPA which is more media specific.
