Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has chided Utusan Malaysia and other media outlets for allegedly running down the state government by publishing "fake news" about the controversial state undersea tunnel project.

Lim said it seemed clear that BN has used the media to try and paint him and the Penang government in a negative light.
