Submission + - Nobel jurors alleged open to bribery on trips

RockDoctor writes: A report is circulating that in the run-up to the selection of prize-winners for 2006 and 2008, some members of the Nobel jury accepted an expenses-paid trip (or trips) to China to "explain the selection process". While that's not in itself a lynching matter ("Is there something that we're doing wrongly, or not doing?" is a valid question), and if there was dishonourable intent, it doesn't seem to have worked too well (the last Chinese Nobel Laureate was in 1957), there does seem to be embarrassment about falling into an obvious conflict of interest mantrap.
