It all depends on where you're standing.

The correct answer 99 percent of the time is "no" it's not a legal order...but it all comes down to "is it worth it to fight for the right, at that moment, with that specific situation?"

They can move you back to another location if they've declared a crime scene and your state does not allow media extra privilages above the average citizen. But technically, they can not force you to shut off the camera. In that case, you just keep rolling as you move back to get what you can.
