Media bias at its worst: Reuters removes story, instead of correcting it, after realizing they had falsely blamed Trump for something that Obama did

Reuters recently reported the following. And please keep in mind that I am quoting the article in its entirety:

Story on U.N. study on child detentions withdrawn

November 18, 2019

GENEVA (Reuters) – A Nov. 18 story headlined “U.S. has world’s highest rate of children in detention -U.N. study” is withdrawn. The United Nations issued a statement on Nov. 19 saying the number was not current but was for the year 2015. No replacement story will be issued.

Why did Reuters withdraw the original online article, instead of adding a correction to it?

Why isn’t Reuters publishing a replacement article?
