PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Police have removed about a dozen protesters from the Comcast Corp. headquarters in Philadelphia on the fourth day of demonstrations around the city against the Democratic National Convention.

Police say they were taken away to be issued citations.

The busy food court inside the downtown skyscraper has also been reopened to the public.

Members of Occupy DNC were protesting what they say is a failure by the mainstream media to report the truth.

Comcast is the nation's largest cable TV operator and residential Internet service provider. It owns NBC and its affiliated cable news networks, among other entertainment properties.

About 200 demonstrators have also gathered near City Hall. The Democratic convention is being held about 4 miles away at the Wells Fargo Center.
