This tawdry tableau, which I’m not proud to commit to the page, goes a long way toward explaining the unlikely spot I find myself in at the moment. (from here)

Which definition is adjusted to the word commit in this context?

I tried to find a reasonable definition for this context - in two dictionaries but I am not sure. (See Cambridge and Oxford for this word)


The phrase "commit to page" means write down (or record).

The expression "commit to paper" is a more common way of saying this and it's specifically defined in Collins.
