"the five" starts now. >> jesse: hello, i'm jesse watters with dagen mcdowell, geraldo rivera, dana perino, and bill hemmer. it's 5:00 in new york city, and this is "the five." ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ welcome to our new year's special. what a wild 12 months it has been, from covid to the crime crisis, the major bite and missteps, high-profile tribes, celebrity news, and everything else in between. discovered a lot, and we are
misconduct, constitutional law, and everything that the media tried to spin one way ended up being a complete disaster. we saw the trial in real time. we saw a jury deliberate methodically, and people at this table believe that was pretty cut and dry self-defense. it opened people's eyes. dagen, i think you would agree that it opened the country's eyes to a lot of factors that have plagued heavily. >> liberal friends of mine following people on instagram and twitter were shocked at what they saw, because it was completely the opposite story of the lies that were peddled by everybody, from joe biden on down, as soon as it happened. i mean as soon as it happened, like in "the new york times" right after the shooting, they were talking about kyle rittenhouse's race, but not the
race of the two people he killed. >> jesse: it is still reverberating. you could have lawsuits slapped against some of these big media corporations for defamation, slander, libel, what have you. >> i don't think that's going to be the aftermath. i think the take away will be how the country was divided, and people were rooting for a finale, rooting for how it was going to turn out. some people wanted him to be acquitted, others wanted him to be convicted. people chose decides based on ideology, not the evidence. it was very distressed to see infected something as basic as this. i hated that there were cheerleaders and jeering, depending on your point of view. >> jesse: i was running for self defense. that should be noted. dana, what was your biggest story of the year, donna? besides how i saved the world.
[laughter] 's before my first one got the number one. [laughter] >> dana: will always be number one. >> geraldo: so nice! [laughter] 's before i have to be nice. [laughter] a whole bunch of stories, but i chose one that i think will have an impact for many decades. this was the year that new space travel took place. galactic and blue origin getting up there and taking civilians into space. it might have only been an 11 minute ride, but so many ambitious goals that are coming out of these programs. "time" magazine named elon musk the man of the year. it's not just because of his electric vehicles. i think it's much more about the vision and the pioneer spirit and the next frontier: space. >> jesse: my runner-up for main of the year was bill hemmer. [laughter] >> almost made the cover. [laughter] >> 2022, you've got this.
[laughter] >> bill: happy new year. [laughter] >> dana: anybody like my -- >> love it. >> bill: dana and i talked about this. i loved a choice. it was a good one. i've been at fox news for 16 years, and for 8 of them i have been in times square freezing. [laughter] dana, they send the crew down to nashville, tennessee! someone doesn't like me. [laughter] >> jesse: why don't you go ahead to? i think we are done with space. >> wow. >> bill: i think you are right. it's the vision of the future. we want to be those astronauts. the only downside is so few people can reasonably participate. >> for now. >> elon musk told jeff bezos to spend less time in the hot tub. i don't know what that means. >> bill: i think, without a doubt, this is the imminent come up with due respect to my
partners, colleagues, and coanchor's, of what happened on that monday morning, august 16th in cabo. you cannot erase this memory, it is an international embarrassment. the u.s. military deserved better than this after 20 years serving in that war. this was a c17 u.s. air force rolling down the tarmac in kabul with 20-year-old young men bouncing off the side. i don't know where the scene leads or what happens as a consequent. dan hoffman was with us on "america's newsroom" early in the month. he talked about dictatorships being on the march in 2021 into 2022. what he talked about was perhaps at a rate we have not seen since world war ii. i don't know if he is right about that. between putin, xi, and iran -- it has been since the 1980s since we had a president with a bully pulpit like ronald reagan. we are a long way from that in this current white house. we had a democracy summit earlier in december. there are fledgling democracies
in place like ukraine, taiwan, that we hope will hold on into the new year. we will see what comes as a result of this. as i said, though scene was bad. i don't know where it leads. i just hope it leads to a good place. >> interesting that that was the mark where president biden's poll numbers started to go down. >> jesse: that was my pick for the year, but a little birdie told me it was yours, so i went with kyle rittenhouse. i think you are right. no disrespect to space. >> dana: i wanted more of an optimistic story. [laughter] trying to find good news. >> jesse: we were here in the newsroom during the afghanistan situation in august. i think everybody understood how serious of an event that was. story of the year, dagen mcdowell, the floor is yours. >> dagen: a huge hardship for many americans, inflation. the fastest pace in almost 40
years. wages are falling for many americans. they are just in for inflation, there's price increases, the federal reserve and democrats screwed up in unison, in both monetary and fiscal policy, respectively. jay powell and his cronies at the fed, they were way too cavalier starting in 2020, letting prices get hot, deciding to let it run, ignoring the signs even in the spring that the prices were getting out of hand. they kept buying $120 billion worth of securities every month, government securities, and have kept interest rates at 0 all year. then, the liberal spend thrifts in washington are loving him, because the fed was stocking up more than half of their spending. the central bank bought more than half of the treasury debt issued this year, and now, the white house is trying to push this giant new welfare monstrosity, making matters worse.
they don't even know what to say about it. when -- which asked about it, she blamed grady big meat, the meat industry, the greed -- the federal reserve has no good options left. whatever they do is going to be a huge policy mistake. look out below. >> bill: i think they are all excellent stories and choices. there's a lot of places where we don't know what's going to happen next. i would be a fan of the fed being more hawkish than dovish. i don't know what that does to the market in the meantime, but we have taken our economic weapons out of our own hands. it is like what japan did in the 1990s: taking interest rates down to 0. you can't. when you are at 0, you have a few places to go. unfortunately, that is where we are. >> jesse: geraldo rivera? >> geraldo: the biggest story i think of the year, may be of lifetime, is covid. as much as we want to ignore it, as much as we want to make it go
away, it's here, we are on the verge of another surge with this variant. we have 50 million americans infected, 799,000 dead americans. california has the most dead: 75,600, texas 75,000, florida 62,000. tom hanks, rita wilson, tom brady, luke bryan, sarah palin, michael strahan, larry king passed away, nancy grace. the list goes on. >> jesse: yes, they celebrate affected with covid. [laughter] almost everybody is going to get this. it's very serious. >> geraldo: i think the municipalities and mask mandates and travel mandates and vaccine mandates, all the rest of it, i think that it will be a part of our life for another year. >> used the word "ignored." >> we try our best.
>> i want to say about the trial with kyle rittenhouse. you are right about the cameras in the courtroom, but that trial would not have turned out the way it did without the visual medium of the videotapes present in the streets. together, it made for a potent argument. >> jesse: it did. i think i should change mind to inflation. if that sticks around, that's going to be very powerful politically. >> dagen: the new york fed did a public survey about inflation ex-vexations for the next year among individuals: record high. >> jesse: bill hemmer could have done that. coming up, our resolutions and productions for 2022. what will dana predict this year customer she's always right. first, we are facing off with a 2021 trivia showdown. next on our new year's special. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪
