I ask this because of the whole Chris Dorner
manhunt and shootout that is going on.
I'm listening currently in to the San Bernardino County Sheriff's feed (5-0 radio app, or radioreference.com), and it just happened that the media (NBC4 and KTLA 5) in Los Angeles were both trying to get the better look at things (as the media always tries to do), and gave away the SWAT team's locations on the air. In doing that, they busted the TFR around L35 (FDC 3/8037).
LEAs there were able to get the TFR changed from SFC-13000ft MSL to SFC-13000ft AGL, and got them to stop their feed.
So my question: What happens when the media busts a TFR? What repercussions do they get, and how would it differ from what a private pilot gets when they bust it?
