    Smile hard information

    Hi,

    What does hard information mean in this context?

    More than a day after the Algerian army launched an assault to seize the remote desert compound, much was still unclear about the number and fate of the victims, leaving countries with citizens in harm's way struggling to find hard information.

    I guess that it means information that has solid facts.

    But I also wonder if there is soft information that means information with no solid facts.

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: hard information

    Verified, correct information.

    I don't think we would speak of "soft information."
