Because they contain different things. NEWS traditionally contains
user-visible changes, compressed into a concise "what you need to know"
format. A ChangeLog is traditionally finer-grained "what I just
committed" messages. These days, version-control history is usually used
in lieu of the ChangeLog, but that's not a substitute for NEWS.

So I'd suggest deleting ChangeLog instead, and updating NEWS.rst to
explain what's new.
