I would argue that sports are soft news in the fact that they are meant to serve as entertainment. Hard news has an affect on peoples everyday lives without them choosing. Like a killer on the loose. The example of O.J. Simpson’s trial would qualify as hard news because it wasn’t about sports but rather about a murder.
