Unreliable narrators are why I love POV-flipping so much. It's almost a different story.

While Haymitch is more right than Katniss about Peeta here, he's also indulging in a little idealization. I didn't notice how subtle Collins is with his character on a casual read, but going through this chapter, she does a fabulous job of letting Peeta peek out around Katniss's filter. He's hurt, he's angry, and he's scared -- the little lash-out lines that he has about "After she shoved me!" and "Say hello to my mother"... he's a sixteen year old kid who just took a big emotional risk and didn't get much from it.
