From casually scimming the journalctl source code, unless I've overlooked something, it seems like only journalctl handles the presentation of the data in the specified OutputMode which is why there is no journald configuration option, because it's irrelevant to journald.
Inside journalctl, OutputMode is only set from external input via the -o CLI option.
Going by these facts, it seems like there is no way to archieve what you want just with journalctl.
If that's correct, there are 2 simple alternatives:
* alias journalctl='journalctl -o foo' * Put a journalctl wrapper into a directory that is at the head of $PATH:
#!/bin/sh exec /usr/sbin/journalctl -o foo "$@"
