Prove to be false (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

rebut

'prove to be false' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for rebut that I've seen before include "explode" , "Prove the claim wrong" , "Prove to be false or incorrect" , "Contradict or disprove" , "Overturn" .)

I've seen this clue in The Wall Street Journal, the USA Today, the Family Time, The Times, the Newsday.com, The Guardian, the Universal, the Irish Times (Simplex) and the Sydney Morning Herald.
