Put to shame

Posted by James Fox on January 19, 2004

I did a search in the Phrase Thesaurus for "exposure" and this phrase "Put to shame" came up.

What does "Put to shame" have to do with "exposure"?

Is it like exposing a person and then letting everyone know about it? E.g. His dodgy dealings were exposed and his company was put to shame??
