why does the screen of a pc show up funny on pictures or video?

every time a computer screen is shown on a video or taken a picture of it always looks like its flickering or bands going through it. why is that? i mean at first i would think maybe it had to do with something about the camera quality but even when you watch the news and they are reporting somewhere and there are computers in the background they are distorted too and you would think the news would have the best cameras for taping things.. is it how the screen is made or what? not that many people have reasons to take pictures of computer screens but when they are in the background it always made me wonder

That is a very good question. I have taken some pictures of things on the computer screen, and whether I aim my camera at a traditional monitor, or a flat-screen, I still get weird things happening to it. Aim it at the flat screen and I get lines, aim it at the traditional one, and i get a glare. Thank GOD I figured out how to do screenshots on my laptop.
