I partially understand based on the background and context, but I've never seen it used this way before.
Can someone provide the full meaning of carpeted in this context and also tell me if it is a new usage or something old and obscure.
From the news article: Joe Hockey carpets Liberal leaders
OPPOSITION Treasury spokesman Joe Hockey yesterday carpeted Liberal Party leakers for undermining the opposition's bid to secure government.
Mr Hockey condemned talk of leadership divisions stoked last week by a leaked email from chief whip Warren Entsch rebuking former leader Malcolm Turnbull.
"I would say to people they should put their ambitions for the nation ahead of their own ambitions," Mr Hockey said.
