    go out to any general aviation airport and watch the planes in the traffic pattern. Look up at an airplane a thousand feet overhead, and you will swear you can count the rivets on the plane.

    The press can already fly over. A thousand feet AGL is not even an inconvenience.  They can even fly inside the TSA if they have a special clearance.

    Aircraft transiting a congested are must keep at least two thousand feet altitude, unless they are landing or taking off.  We see car chases and other news reports all the time from more than two thousand feet.
