great gatsby chapter 9

Are we supposed to agree with Jordan that Nick isn’t straightforward or honest, or with Nick when he says he’s “five years too old to lie to myself and call it honor”?

Nick is a pretty reliable narrator but even he gets submerged in the dirty laundry and amoral values of people from East Egg. I don't think nick is purposely dishonest: he just does not know how to handle the explosive situation.
