I'm no expert, but I would bet that the WAHP shot was done that way so that the film speed would match up with the frame rate of television monitor playing on-set.
Sounds logical. On the other hand, we have a lot of real monitor shots done in 24 fps. I've read somewhere, that it was common practice to rather match the refresh on those CRT's to film rather than vice versa.
Yep there were special CRTs monitors that you could get that were sync'ed at 48Hz so it was in step with the 24 fps film system and wouldn't show the rolling refresh bar you can see when not syn'ed. These kind of monitors were on the bridge sets of all the Trek movies and TV shows throughout the '80s and '90s AFAIK.
