I think when approaching a statement which you feel is not factual, the goal should be to enlighten and not to invalidate. No one likes to be told their opinion or statement is wrong, they then feel the need to defend. State things in a way that doesn't attack the person/statement, and isn't being said to inflate one's own ego. And be open to the fact that you might be wrong.
