This question already has an answer here:
More and more in TV interviews -- and only on TV, by the way, never in "real" life -- I hear people using what I call, for lack of any other name, "Self-Questioning.". Example: "Do I regret saying what I did that morning? Yes, I do. Do I wish I had said something else instead? Of course. But we cannot go backwards, so what's done is done.". Sometimes there are three self-questions in the series, but usually there are only two. I don't know the official name for this, if there even is one. All I know is that I loathe it. Has anyone else noticed this confessional-like speech pattern? I am positive I never encountered it until recently, and unfortunately seems to be gaining in popularity.
