The Nobel Peace Prize ceremony's getting underway in Oslo - but there's one noticeably empty chair in the audience. It's reserved for Chinese laureate Liu Xiaobo, who won the award for his human rights and political reform work. But the pro-democracy activist is serving an 11-year sentence for subversion. Chinese authorities are not only banning him, but also his wife from attending the ceremony in Norway. The U.S. is among nations calling for Lui's release, saying peaceful expressions are at the core of human rights. But Professor Michel Chossudovsky, who's a globalization analyst, says it smacks of double standards.
