(CNN) — The executive editor of The Washington Post hit back at Sen. Bernie Sanders’ suggestion that the paper’s coverage of the presidential candidate is linked to its owner’s business interests, calling the accusation a “conspiracy theory.”

Marty Baron responded in a statement Monday evening to Sanders’ words during a stump speech earlier in the day. While delivering remarks in New Hampshire, the independent Vermont senator, who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, suggested there was a link between the coverage he receives in the Post and his rhetoric toward Amazon.

The article goes on to state the following:

“I talk about (Amazon’s taxes) all of the time,” Sanders said in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire. “And then I wonder why The Washington Post, which is owned by Jeff Bezos, who owns Amazon, doesn’t write particularly good articles about me. I don’t know why.”

In a statement provided to CNN on Monday evening, Baron responded, saying, “Sen. Sanders is a member of a large club of politicians — of every ideology — who complain about their coverage.”

    Well Bernie … first of all Amazon does not pay taxes because of the laws set forth by Congress, not by Amazon. Think about that for a moment will you? And the wealthy get by with things because AGAIN the laws set forth 🤦🏻‍♀️
