In any discussion between Bill Keller and Glenn Greenwald on the role of journalists, you cannot go wrong by automatically taking Greenwald's side. Keller wouldn't know journalism if it came up to him and made him sit through a three-hour home movie showing itself from birth to the present day. For Keller, "journalism" amounts to "all the news that we think important people will read and the government won't be mad at us for publishing". The NYTimes is still somewhat better than the WaPo, despite its lack of comics, but that's about all you can say. "Journalism", in a form recognizable to Keller's antecedents, is today only practiced by magazines, online 'publications', and once in a great while by newspapers.
